I went to see a doctor at the british olympic medical center yesterday and he said that my long term calf injury is just a strain and not compartment syndrome or a nerve entrapment. he says i have strain my achillies where at ht epoint where the achillies joins with the calf ( about 12 cm above my heel). So ive had this strain for 3 years now and he said it hasnt healed yet because it needs strengthening but no operation will be needed! he’s gave me a strengthening and stretching programme and i need regular massage. he said that complete rest isnt the answer as ive rested for 6 months and it didnt get better.
id be grateful if anyone would like to give there views on his answer and any tips for calf/achillies rehab!
