Achilles Tendon Tear - Bronson Healthcare

Achilles Tendon Tear

The Achilles is the largest tendon in the body, connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. A complete tear through this tendon is called an Achilles tendon tear or rupture and most commonly occurs in individuals participating in recreational sports. A tear may require surgery. However non-surgical treatments may also be possible.
