achilles tendon

(2 discussions)

I have bursitis and tendonitis in my right leg’s achilles tendon for 14 months. I have seen my family doctor, 2 arthritis specialists, and 3 podiatrists.
The physicians’ advice was to avoid stressing the tendon, I have had massage therapy, ultasonic treatment, neurotherapy, acupuncture, waveshock treatment, drugs, and have`been fitted`with plantar insoles, braces, & fabric boots to immobilize the foot, yet I still have the pain.
What shall I do next?

    If your doctor decides it is inflammation of the achilles tendon ( achilles tendonitis) as him or her about the Actipatch. A new product which provides therapy at home. Works well in reducing inflammation in most all areas.
