Re: Achilles Tendon Problem

Please help. My Right archilles area is enlarged at the lower part and I have shooting pains frequently just below the bottom of the calf (?top of the archilles) I have been to physio and have several stretch exercises including "raise toes up over a step and lower heels slowly to below step level" and affected foot behind other foot, bend knees and lower body over sore heel(behind one).
This has not relieved either the pain or swelling - should I continue with these exercises increasing frequency to 6 times a day or do what?
Thank you

Jenny Peters

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.
