Achilles Tendon pain & stiffness while running

Recommended Posts

When I run I find that my Achilles' tendon gets really tight in my right ankle. I stretch after the 5 minute warmup and find that I am having to after running each time. I bought new shoes which has helped a bit, but am still having it happen. Any ideas on how to stop it?

Is it painful as well after your run? or just tight? Tightness and stiffness usually mean a lack of blood flow to the area and pain usually indicates inflammation. Most of the time the two go hand in hand. When an area becomes inflamed, a lot of the blood flow to the area is hindered. Ice after your run to make sure your body can supply the necessary blood flow it needs to heal.
