DR ABRAMS POST TIB TENDONITIS TREATMENT??

DR ABRAMS,

I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITHPOST TIB TENDONITIS FOR 3 MONTHS NOW. I HAVE NO NUBNESS OR TINGLING JUST LOCALIZED PAIN ON THE INNER ANKLE WITH NO FLATTENNING OF THE ARCH. I HAVE BEEN IN A SOFT BOOT CAST FOR 3 WEEKS AND I HAD A CORTISONE SHOT WHICH HELPED FOR ABOUT A WEEK. I TRIED PT,WHICH SEEMED TO AGGRAVATE MY SYMPTOMS. I ALSO ICE IT ON A CONSISTENT BASIS ,BUT IT DOES HELP ONLY FOR ABOUT A HOUR FOR RELIEF. I TRIED VIOXX FOR ABOUT 3 WEEKS WHICH HELPED A LITTLE BUT GOT FRUSTRATED. HOW LONG SHOULD I GIVE AN NSAID THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK BEFORE GIVING UP ON IT?? ALSO ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GRATEFUL THANK YOU

This slip-on device is a soft and stretchable Nylon/Lycra® fabric molded with a proprietary gel pad to protect the entire Achilles tendon of the foot by absorbing pressure and friction resulted from rubbing with the surface of the shoe.
