The Achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in the body. It connects your calf muscle to the back of your heel bone, allowing your foot to push off the floor when walking. When the tendon is over worked it becomes inflamed, this condition is called Achilles tendonitis.
The tendonitis can be found at the insertion site of the Achilles tendon on the heel bone or at any point along the tendon. Pain and swelling often occurs when the calf muscle contracts as you are pushing off of the ground. This condition if not treated early can progressively get worse and even lead to eventual rupture of the Achilles tendon.
