What is the best cure for achilles heel tendinitis?

6 doctors weighed in across 3 answers

Some things may help: For inflammation at achilles' tendon near the heel bone, one can take Motrin 3 times a day for a few days to decrease inflammation. Decrease sports activities, and use a cold pack on the area 3 times a day after activities. Use a good arch support + shock-absorbing heel cushion, to avoid pronation from flat feet. Do gentle calf stretches. If not better, see an orthopedic or sports medicine doctor.

There is no : Magic pill. Stretching is important. Physical therapy, heel lifts, antiinflammatories. Shockwave therapy can be considered, prp injections are a consideration. Sometimes immobilization is performed.
