Achilles Tendonitis For 5 Months, With Knots On The Tendons
I've had a problem with achilles tendonitis for about 5 months now.
Even prior to that I noticed a tightness in those tendons after getting up from sitting for a while, or going for a walk.
I saw a doctor, then I went to about a dozen physical therapy sessions.
I have a large knot on the one side and smaller knot on the other side.
Have you seen the therapy that you describe work for someone that has a large knot on the back of their ankle?
Hi Christine. Thanks for asking!
Yes, I have seen great results working with the Achilles Tendonitis
Depending on the size of the knots and what exactly is going on in your legs, they may or may not go away. Probably not, if your knots are what I'm thinking they are, as knots are the gradual accumulation of scar tissue fibers.
Meaning, your tendon is actually bigger now. Thicker. Not a problem, but the way scar tissue lays down sets you up for ongoing pain and 'injury'. It happens slowly over time.
But you can make them 'healthy' with some work.
I'm in the process of filming an Achilles Tendonitis DVD, should be out in 1-2 months. It will describe all that.
Until then, ice as described on the How To Reduce Inflammation
Does that answer your question?
And as always, more questions, more answers!
