Home Forums Body Forum Foot & Ankle Achilles Tendon Rupture

  • Achilles Tendon RuptureThe calf has two muscles: the gastrocnemius and the soleus. They meet to form the Achilles tendon, the large fibrous cord that runs down the back of your lower leg. It connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. The Achilles tendon is used for push-off strength, balance, and power while standing, walking, running, and jumping. This tendon can tear, creating pain at the time of the rupture, and then making it difficult to walk or run.
