The calf muscle is the large muscle located on the back of your leg, below the knee. The tendon that connects the calf muscle to the heel bone is known as the Achilles tendon.
When calf muscles become tight, the risk of muscle or Achilles tendon tears and injury increases. Tightness in your calf muscles may also lead to plantar fasciitis and other foot and ankle problems.
