Achilles Tendon Treatment at [[Hospital Name]]

Tendons are fibrous bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones, allowing the body to move. The largest tendon in the body is the Achilles tendon, which is located in the back of the leg and attaches the calf muscle to the heel bone.

When working properly, the Achilles tendon helps you walk, jump and stand on your tiptoes. If the tendon is injured, it may cause intense pain and difficulty walking. If you experience this type of pain, you should seek immediate medical care to prevent further damage.
