Achilles Tendonitis

Posted by S.Dion on 8/07/01 at hrmin (055824)

I may not be able to spell it, but I know what I have!!! Ouch. I'm told by a friend/physical therapist that I should try heel lifts. Can you recommend a particular brand or place where I could get them?

If you have other advice, I'm all ears. I have stopped playing basketball for about 2 months and it didn't disappear, so I started again. Since it doesn't seem to improve no matter what, I'm of the mindset that I might as well keep playing.

Thanks,

Sean

Heel lifts can provide some relief. I generally use 'home made' ones cut out of a piece of felt. Sounds like it may be going on long enough to seek professional advice though.
