Attachment to bone


The muscle which is the engine of joint movement can only function through its attachment to the bone by way of the tendon. While there are many distinct types of tendons, some broad and others narrow, they are always the interface between muscle and bone.

Achilles


Swelling can occur/remain with injury or chronic problem. Probably bone issue is chronic, likely years in the making, from chronic tightness.

What exactly


Is your question? Achilles tendonitis and an extra bone. The injury did not cause the extra bone. It could of caused the tendonitis but you did not share what the injury was. Are you asking what to do now? Physical therapy is good for the tendon, sometimes docs advocate immobilization, others like eccentric excercises. Heel lifts may be helpful.or Immobilization in a cam walker type boot.

Tendintis vs. CTS


Both diagnoses, DeQuervain's tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome can be seen in "new" moms. Dequervain's is more common with pain at the wrist below the thumb. It can be painful with breastfeeding due to sustained posture. Carpal tunnel would be associated with pain, numbness noted when awakening. It also can be caused by extreme wrist posture while breast feeding. Both can respond to splints

Yes


There is a difference between pain relief and healing. Athlete need healed tissue. Studies advocate NSAID use for ligament injuries, because they were such great pain-relievers, when in fact they were and are stopping the healing mechanisms of the body. Any technique or medication that stops the normal inflammatory process that helps heal the body must have a long-term detrimental effect.

Yes


Often in trauma, the X-ray visible injuries receive the most attention. Muscle tears may heal in a shortened length so that joint movement becomes limited over time. Tendon and Ligament injuries become apparent when return to forceful or work activity brings out myofascial pain or instability complaints. A soft tissue examination will be needed to confirm this.

While mechanisms of injury to these structures may be similar and in many cases treatment may be similar they are very distinct anatomically and in terms of function and healing potential. So it would be important to know the location, type and extent of injury.
