Your Achilles tendon is your strongest and largest tendon in your body. It is also known as the heel cord or calcaneal tendon. It is located on the back of your leg and connects your calf muscle to your heel bone. That makes it a very important part of your body, and if something goes wrong with it, it can affect many other important functions of your body.

There are many common types of shoulder injuries in sports
In Baseball throwing a baseball is one of the fastest and most violent maneuvers to which any joint in the body is subjected. A rotator cuff is crucial to withstand the extraordinary forces experienced with the normal throwing motion. Lesions of the rotator cuff tendons are a common source of shoulder pain and injury.
In Swimming injuries and micro-trauma can cause shoulder to become unstable and lead to should pain and tendinitis. With “Swimmer’s Shoulder” the joint is commonly affected by injuries or overuse. Common shoulder injuries may include rotator cuff impingement, bicep tendinitis, and shoulder instability.
In Golf each shoulder has to do a very specific and opposite maneuver while swinging the golf club. The leading shoulder is prone to rotator cuff tears, posterior instability, AC joint pain and subacromial impingement. The non-leading shoulder is prone to anterior instability, rotator cuff tears, SLAP tears, and subacromial impingement.
