Where is the achilles tendon?

Where is the achilles tendon?

The Achilles tendon starts in the middle of your calf and extends down to your heel. It connects your calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus muscles) in the back of your lower leg to the heel bone in your foot. The gastrocnemius muscle has two heads that crisscross the knee joint. This muscle flexes your knee and ankle. The soleus muscle flexes your foot to point your toes downward.
