The Achilles tendon is a strong fibrous cord that helps connect the muscles in the back of your calf to the heel bone. This tendon helps in pointing your foot downward, rising on your toes, and pushing off your foot when walking.
The condition known as Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness,sometimes referred to as DOMS, is the result of exercise or physical exertion of muscles beyond the levels they are accustomed to. When overexerted, muscles tear at many points microscopically.
Hamstring strains happen when one of your hamstring muscles gets pulled or strained. This can happen in any of the three muscles, but it mostly occurs with the middle one.
An overuse injury is any kind of joint or muscle injury, like a stress fracture or tendinitis that happens from repetitive micro-trauma to the joints, tendons, and bones. Overuse injuries ultimately result in injuries like tennis elbow, runner’s knee, shin splints, and achilles tendinitis.
