Cover Story (view full-size image): Running is one of the most popular forms of exercise worldwide. A common location of pain among recreational runners is the Achilles tendon. Diagnostic ultrasound has been introduced for clinical decision-support in tendon pain management. The aim of this study was to determine whether thickness and morphological changes in the Achilles tendon detected in ultrasound examinations are associated with local symptoms in recreational runners. Twenty-one runners were investigated by ultrasound examination. The authors report that symptomatic Achilles tendons were thicker than asymptomatic tendons and that the importance of parallel morphological findings need to be further investigated in prospective studies.
