This is a devasting injury for anyone, especially world-class athletes. Take NBA player Kevin Durant and his injury that could keep him out for some time. To be fair Durant was dealing with a calf injury on the same leg, for some weeks before this injury.

But it was his first game back in action and it led to a crushing injury!

Calf & Achilles Tendon Relationship

The calf and Achilles tendon are so interrelated that when one has an issue so does the other.

Let’s take a look.

The Gastrocnemius and Soleus muscles basically make up the calf.

Chiropractic Adjustments/Manual Manipulations

Many times, the issues with your Achilles tendon are the result of misalignment in other parts of your body.

What’s Afoot

If you have low back pain or have had it, you are not alone. Experts estimate that around 80% of people will experience some type of back problem at some point in their lives. The Global Burden of Disease 2010 lists low back pain as the number one cause of disability worldwide. The good news is the majority of back pain is mechanical in origin or is not organic. This means that infection, cancer, fracture, inflammatory arthritis, and other serious conditions are not the cause. In fact, you may benefit by looking to your feet, knees, and hips as the culprits.

The large, thick tendon that travels up from the base of the heel and into the calf muscle is the Achilles tendon. It connects the calf muscle and heel. It allows you to walk, run and jump. The Achilles tendon is strong and durable, but it is possible to overwork it and cause enough overuse injury.
