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.
