Did You Know?

The Achilles tendon

The Achilles tendon is a very important part of the body. It connects the calf muscles to the heel bone, making it possible for us to walk. The tendon allows the foot to point downward and to push off the ground, two important steps when walking. The most common location of rupture in the tendon is 2.5 inches from where it attaches to the heel bone. This part of the tendon gets the least blood flow, making it harder to heal. Ruptures are typically found in athletes because of the intensity and stress placed on the muscles.
