Re: achilles tendonitis

I have similar symptoms as your previous writer, Kathy, however, I had no original toe injury. I did have an ankle injury / sprain. My ankle twisted as I was trapsing on the beach, and immediately a small pocket of fluid was around my ankle. A week later I saw a chiropractor who, as I was lying completely flat on the table, pulled my leg (on the injured ankle side) very hard by holding onto my heel, and keeping the foot upright. There was no immediate pain from this, although not any real improvement in the ankle either. Later that day, I noticed it hurt to put pressure on my heel. I would say that since, (and perhaps before w/ me just not noticing) my ankle is getting better, and my heel is worse. If I am walking down hill, or when ever I extend my foot there is pain and restricted movement. I have occassional pains running up the back of my calf.
What do you recommend?
Thank you, Kendra

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.
