Achillies tendonitis scar tissue
Approximetely nine months ago I got a fairly severe case of achillies tendonitis from overtraining and inappropriate footwear. I was stubborn and I tried to run on it anyway, and I think I made it much worse. Although a lot of the swelling has gone down in the past few months, I still have a couple large masses of scar tissue that won’t go away. I can’t do much, even walking seems to irritate it, and causes me to have tighness and pain all the way up to my hamstrings. I was told that the only thing I could do was get the scar tissue surgically removed, though I’ve read elsewhere that surgery may cause more scar tissue. Does anyone know about this? Also, if anyone has any recovery tips I’d be very greateful. This is indeed a frustrating injury.
