The Achilles tendon connects the muscles in calf to the heel bone. It is made up of thick fibrous tissues. If your Achilles tendon ruptures, we have both surgical and non-surgical treatments to help you get back on your feet again without any pain. The Achilles tendon is also known as the calcaneal tendon.
The Achilles tendon is the strongest and largest tendon in human body. When we flex our calf muscles the Achilles tendon is pulled on the heel. This movement enables us to stand on our toes during walking, running or jumping. Even though it is the strongest tendon in the body, it may still get injured because of high tensions placed on it.
