Tight Achilles Tendons (aka Equinus) and its Consequences

Tight Achilles Tendons and their treatment is a common part of a podiatry practice. This extensive article highlights it's problems, although perhaps too much for my blog. If you know you have tight calves, or have been told that in the past, begin 2-3 times daily stretching as my video below reviews. For Equinus (yes, horses run on their toes), is a sometimes silent cause of many many lower extremity, even back, conditions.
