The Achilles tendon is the largest and most powerful tendon in our body. The tendon is located at the back of the lower leg. The Achilles tendon connects the calf muscle with the heel bone, the heel of the foot. Because the tendon is located over the ankle joint, the foot can make a movement downwards (plantar flexion). Because of the plantar flexion in us, we can sell ourselves. Because the tendon is big, strong and powerful, we can push ourselves off when running, climbing stairs and jumping.
The Achilles tendon is an important tendon. If the tendon does not function properly, it can cause hindrances in the ankle joint. Hence
An Achilles tendon injury can occur in different ways. For example, an injury can occur immediately when suddenly or unexpectedly much force is placed on the Achilles. It is also possible that an Achilles tendon injury occurs after a continuous repeatable movement.
