Normally, the myotendinous junction of plantaris occurs approximately at the level of origin of soleus muscle from tibia in the proximal part of leg, the long tendon passes between the medial head of gastrocnemius and soleus, continues along the medial aspect of tendocalcaneus for its insertion on calcaneum either independently or in association with tendocalcaneum, Andreo A Spina DC.
