      Fascial release

    • C. 

      Fasciotomy

    • D. 

      Fasciectomy

  • 10. 
    Achilles tedonitis/tendinosis often occurs as a result of frequent ___________ use of gastroc/soleus.
  • 11. 
    Which of the following is true regarding Achilles tendonitis/tendinosis?
    • A. 

      Pain/ swelling 2-6 CM above calcaneal insertion

    • B. 

      Pain/ swelling 2-6 cm below calcaneal insertion

    • C. 

      Achilles prone to degeneration/poor vascularization
