How is Achilles tendonitis diagnosed?

Achilles tendonitis can be diagnosed by a physical examination. Other tests, such as an X-ray, ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be recommended to confirm the diagnosis. An MRI is typically used in cases of a torn Achilles tendon, or when surgery may be required.
