Archilles swollen

I injured L archilles playing squash 6 mths ago, (hadn’t played >20 yrs) and still have discomfort from it. Only exercise I get is cycling competitively (A grade) and training associated with that (400km/wk approx).Problem now is that the archilles area appears to be swollen when viewed from standing position, and I’m not sure if should be icing it, massaging it or ignoring it.

    Without examining you I can not say for sure. One possibility is a partial tear. I do not recommend ignoring this. You should make an appointment with a podiatrist or orthopedist.
