chronic achillies tendonitis

I've had achillies tendonitis more than a year after the first 9 months it got a little better then got bad again...use a boot and sometimes a wheelchair..doc says it is caused by a huge heel spur and says he would not surgically touch my foot with a "ten foot pole" due to arthritis in all the joints of my foot...tendin has already torn some from the heel and he says eventually it will completely tear and cause foot drop. is there anything i can do?? please help me..i have seen a podiatrist...ortho and a rhuematologist all say the same

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
