What are the medical cures for achillies tendonitis?
I suffer from achillies tendonitis – which is extreamly painful and affects my mobility. Can anyone tell me of any effective medical procedure that will either cure or at least allieviate this condition?
Ice the affected area 20 minutes at a time every several hours for at least the first 24-48 hours. Wrap ice in a towel to protect your skin. Change to heat treatments for the next several days.
Elevate and immobilize the affected extremity.
Use compression with Ace bandages to reduce swelling. Crutches may be helpful.
Begin an exercise program to build muscle strength and range of motion with a physical therapist after the acute phase.
