  • The Achilles tendon is used in almost every activity that involves moving your foot. When the Achilles is injured, it can be very painfu and end you mobility,

  • The posterior tibal tendon takes a beating supporting the foot and arch while walking. It can sometimes be too much, resulting in this tendon's dysfunction.

  • Two Peroneal Tendons are behind the outside ankle and stabilize the joint outward. These weaker muscles and tendons are prone to injury from ankle turns and rolls.
