Achilles Tendon

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles, son of Peleus and Thetis,  was the mightiest of Greek warriors and hero of Homer’s Trojan War. In an attempt to make Achilles impervious to injury, Thetis dangled Achilles in the river Styx. Unfortunately, she held on by the large tendon at the back of his heel leaving this large powerful tendon vulnerable.
