Achilles Tendonosis and Ugly Swollen Ankles
I have had this Achilles Tendonosis problem for almost a year.
Getting worse- I am on my feet all day.
I have had PRP injection- worn boot for 2 months.
Physical therapy, ice , stretching.
New 150.00 shoes - inserts etc.
My ankle is ugly and swollen all the time.
Have seen podiatrist, ortho-sports medicine.
The scary thing is it is starting also in the other ankle.
Is surgery the only alternative.
I hope surgery isn't the only alternative. But, it's possible, depending on how degraded the tendon is. Even then the body can heal when given all the right factors.
1. Tell me about your 'ugly swollen' ankle. Details details details.
2. Tell me about the other ankle.
4. Overall health.
5. History of injury or pain in the area?
6. Why exactly do you think it's Tendonosis, as opposed to Tendonitis?
If it's because your doctors and such told you what it was, why exactly do they think it's Tendonosis?
See: What Is Tendonitis?
7. Quick description of overall diet?
