  • DR. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS SHARES AN INTERESTING FACT REGARDING THE ACHILLES HEEL

The Achilles tendon located in the heel of the foot was named after one of the most famous mythical characters from Ovid's 'Iliad'.  in an attempt to immortalize her son, Thetas (Achilles' Mother) dipped Achilles into the River Styx, holding him by his ankle.  Therefore the ankle became the only part of his body capable of sustaining a mortal wound.  This is why the strongest tendon in the foot achired the name of Achilles tendon.

If you or a loved requires honest, competent advice or quality foot care, please do not hesitate to contact Dr.Hardy, owner of Toronto Foot Clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics at 416-465-8737.  Remember, we always treat our patients like family!
