Achilles Tendonitis, also known as or Posterior/ Back Heel Pain or Haglund’s Deformity, is caused by the pulling or tearing of the tendon, or the formation of a spur on the tendon. The tendon connects the very powerful calf muscle to the back of the heel bone. This is easily diagnosable as there is a lot of pain in the heel after getting up from resting, and it slowly eases as you begin to move. A small elevation with correction of the position of the heel will reduce the pain.
