Achilles – I want to walk!
I’ve been struggling with what we believe is chronic achilles tendinitis. It was first injured over 6 years ago and has limited my activities from time to time over the years, but at the beginning of January after a short run it began to cause me a lot of pain, so much so that I have had great difficulty walking or standing on my feet for more than a few minutes.
During these last 5 weeks I have tried to stay off it, to ice it regularly and am doing gentle stretches, yet the pain persists. I had a doctor look at it and he didn’t think there was a rupture and so encouraged me to continue what I am doing. That was a couple of weeks ago. Does anyone have a clue as to how long it may take for me to get over the pain and pack on my feet???
