Re: Achilles Tendonitis or Partial Tear

You have obviously taken a great deal of time to post this information, and I understand your concern, but unless I were to examine you and take x-rays and do a sonogram or MRI, I can not tell you whether you have tendonitis, a partial tear or complete tear.

Thompson's test can be misleading. One thing I will say about pain is that if you ignore it and it gets worse, that means trouble later.

Have this seen about either by a podiatrist or orthopedist.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Super easy strap adjustment for a custom fit with solid ankle support.
