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.

When it comes to cars and motor vehicles, there are things you can do to help prevent an accident. At the beginning of 2018, it is a great time to take inventory on your vehicle safety, and start the New Year as safe as possible.
- Make sure your car is inspected and up-to-date on car maintenance. Have a professional check your brakes and tires. Have your fluids checked so it doesn’t expectantly stop in the middle of traffic. Pay attention to warning lights, and don’t ignore them. A well-maintained car is a great way to avoid a car accident.
- Make sure you are in good condition to drive. Maintain your regular checkups as well. Get your eyes checked so you can clearly see the road. A healthy driver has better reaction time and is less likely to have a severe health problem while driving. Also, it’s important to ensure that you’re not taking any medications that could inhibit your safe driving ability. If seatbelts or car seats are not functioning or properly positioned, take the time to get those repaired or replaced.
- Take the beginning of the New Year to clean out your car. Check for anything that could be causing you to be distracted while you’re driving. Put your make-up in your house. Do not apply make-up in the car. Place items for your children close to them, so they can reach them.
