Achillis Tendon/ Posteria Tibialis Tendon Bilateral

In June'99 I strained my achilles tendon and Posteria Tibialis Tendon #Bilateral. My achilles tendons took between 6-8 weeks to give and I ended up having decompression surgery on the Posteria Tibialis Tendons Bilateral (this was more important at the time than my achilles tedon - I believe that I would not have been able to walk if this was not done!. I have been wearing othodics since sept'99. My achillies tendons did not settle down and just beofre having to make a decision to have a op on my achillies tendon I was referred to a Podiatrist as a last resort. He found out that I had less than 5% movement in my ankles. This was quickly resolved and my achillies tendons settled for the first time in 2.5 years.

I have to visit the podiatrist on a regular basis for bio-chemical treatment to release between 10 to 14 pressure points because my ankles keep locking and I get bands that have a knock on effect. I am very active - will I be able to ever be as physical as I was - I used to do a lot of running. At the mo I riding a mountain bike because after running about .5 mile every other day for 3 days my achilles tendons start and my ankles lock,
