Anyone had one of these injuries?
I hurt my achilles 3 months ago. it actually came on when i purchased a new pair of running trainers. I have tried resting till there is no pain, then as soon as I run, it returns within 10mins... it is driving me nuts....
I HAD AN INJURY JUST LIKE THIS 18 MOTHS AGO. I WAS ON A LONG RUN AND I FELT A SHARP PAIN JUST ABOVE THE BACK OF THE ANKLE. I HAD TO STOP STRAIGHT AWAY THE INJURY WAS VERY RED AND SORE.
I RESTED FOR 3 WEEKS ICED THE INJURY FOR HALF AN HOUR IN THE MORNING AND AT NIGHT. i ALSO PURCHASED ONE OF THEESE STRONG ELASTIC FOOT SUPPORTS WHICH WAS REALLY GOOD AND COVERED THE INJURED AREA. I HAD THAT ON ALL DAY LONG FOR AROUND 2 WEEKS. WHEN I STARTED TO RUN AGAIN, I WOULD WEAR THIS AND IT MADE QUITE A DIFFERENCE, ALSO PLENTY OF MASSAGE AND DEEP HEAT .
Hi. I started a thread on this - it's still on the health and injury front page. It's a bit long and not all the details may interest but you should find it reasonably informative.
