Achilles tendinitis.: Tendinitis is an inflammatory condition that responds to relative rest, ice, antiinflammatories. If present for greater than 6 weeks probably represents tendinosis or disease of the tendon. If tendinosis effects tendon between calf and heel usually responds to an eccentric loading program. If at the heel usually doesn't respond. Other nonsurgical options: gassion massage, prolotherapy, prp.
