Home Achilles Tendon Injuries

The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body. It connects the two main calf muscles—the gastrocnemius and soleus—to the heel bone (the calcaneus). Common injuries of the Achilles tendon include tendinitis (inflammation), tendinosis (degeneration), and rupture.
