achilles tendonosis

Posted by nolongerfat on 2/20/05 at 19:27 (169513)

What is the best treatment? Was told that I probably will not be able to run again. Had walking boot for 6 weeks and 5 weeks of PT and it is still not feeling great. Do I have any other options besides surgery? I am quite active and would like to resume my workout routines.

Hello Nolongerfat,

Were your PT exercises weight bearing?

You should be aware that performing weight bearing exercises/stretches are not effective because muscles need to be relaxed when performing them and this is not possible in this position.

The other problem is the traditional exercises focus on the wrong muscles.
