The Achilles tendon is located behind the ankle joint and connects the heel bones to the calf muscles. It is the longest tendon in the body, and injury to the Achilles tendon is very common, particularly in runners.
Achilles tendonitis, literally meaning inflammation of the Achilles tendon, results in pain and sometimes swelling focussed at the back of the heel. This often leads to extremely tight calf muscles, and pain upon walking.
