The Achilles Tendon: So Strong, but at Risk for Injury

Posted on by Jessica Doporcyk, PT, DPT | Leave a Comment

What is the Achilles Tendon?

The Achilles tendon is the point of connection for primarily two muscles which make up the bulk of the calf. It is responsible for performing the motion of lifting the heel off the ground. The Achilles tendon is located just above the heel bone where it attaches.  Although it can bare high loads, acute and chronic Achilles tendon pathology continues to be involved in 50% of all sports related injuries.5  In addition, there continues to be a rise in Achilles tendon ruptures (complete tear), of which 75% occur in men between the ages of 30-49 while participating in sports.5

During the third camp of 2016 for the U-15 Girls’ National Team (GNT) in Portland, Oregon, I had the opportunity of working with the same coaches I worked with last spring in Carson, California.

Happy summer! It’s the third week of June and we are continuing our theme of chair stretches.

I hope you have been allowing yourself some time each day to take a break from sitting and stretch!

This week we will learn a seated piriformis stretch. This will target not only the piriformis, but also the gluteal and outer hip muscles, which can become tight when we sit for long periods of time. You will need a chair for this stretch, preferably one without wheels. If your chair has wheels, make sure they are locked in place.
