Archilles Injury

For 12 months I have been walking every second day for my health. I started off slowly and gradually built up the distance walked until I was doing about 12 kms per session. I don't power walk, however I do walk at a good pace.I always start each session slowly and slow down near the end.
About 6 weeks ago the archilles tendon on my left foot was injured. I've had a few sessions of Acupuncture which has eased the pain and am now wearing a support.
What more can I do? I really hate to forfeit my walking. Is such an injury permanent? What is the best treatment for this type of injury?
