An Achilles Tendon Rupture occurs when the tendon that connects your calf muscle to your heel bone becomes torn. Usually, this happens during forceful lower body movements or fast-pivoting. This type of injury is frequently associated with “weekend warriors,” who may be more sedentary during the work week but engage in intense athletic activities during the weekend.
