Achilles tendon tear: Tears of the Achilles tendon can be tiny (microtears), or large, causing pain, swelling, and impaired movement. They may occur suddenly during activity, or gradually over time.

  • Achilles tendon rupture: A complete rupture of the Achilles tendon may make a "pop" sound, followed by pain and swelling of the lower leg. Treating an Achilles tendon rupture requires surgery or long-term immobilization of the ankle.
  • Achilles tendinitis (tendonitis): Frequent activity (running or walking) can gradually inflame the end of the Achilles tendon, causing pain and stiffness at the back of the heel. Rest, ice, and stretching may speed healing, which can take weeks.
  • Achilles peritendonitis: Similar to Achilles tendonitis, but inflammation and pain occur in the tissue surrounding the tendon, often two or more inches above the heel. 
  • Achilles tendinosis: Gradual thickening of the Achilles tendon without apparent inflammation, due to aging or overuse. Despite the thickening, the tendon is weakened and prone to further injury or rupture.
  • Achilles tendinopathy: A general term for tendinitis or tendinosis affecting the Achilles tendon.
  • Achilles or heel (calcaneal) bursitis: Low-riding shoes can irritate the bursa, a sac of fluid cushioning the Achilles tendon at the heel. Pain in the back of the heel, worse with shoes on, is the common symptom.

A piece I heard on Share radio earlier today


"So the bank of Gary Mack is currently in a downturn with all trading suspended. 

Analysts at JP Morgan Chase and BNP Paribas remain bullish however with high hopes that trading will return later in the season and a resumption of dividend payments but both have stopped short of a "buy" rating and have held a "hold" advice note for all investors.

In our view here at Share radio the bank of Gary Mack remains a riskier investment but still miles ahead of the Royal Bank of Scotland that, even with the end of the banking crisis apparently in sight is still in our view some way off of delivering either a dividend or any significant growth to it's beleaguered investors.  No the bank of Gary Mack is one of the better banking invesetments like Lloyds, who have become a leaner and more streamlined business, dividends can reasonable be expected during the next calendar year".
