Not that simple: Treatment for achilles tendinitis varies with the location of the pain along the tendon, the duration, the cause, and your activity level. Giving you a "schedule" for stretching not knowing these factors would be unwise. In addition, the achilles has a poor blood supply. If you have injured this, ice may actually delay the healing process. Please have this examined by a specialist. ...Read more
Can resting sprained ankle/no rehab and limping for months after the injury cause achilles tightness and bottom of foot pain(metatarsalgia, plantar f)?
Compensation....: Limping for months, with or without pain, can cause a change in the mechanics of your normal walk. This is known as compensatory change or compensation.

Can calf atrophy after ankle sprain lead to plantar fasciitis and achilles problems? If so can calf atrophy be reversed?can plantar fasciitis be cured

Physical therapy could be the ticket to a swift recovery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dorsiflexion osteotomy caused hallux limitus. Inversion compensation causing ankle sprains and knee pain. Surgeon only give shot. Can this be fixed?
IT CAN BE FIXED: To be clear, you had a dorsiflexory osteotomy of the 1st metatarsal, and it was raised too much? If so, the surgery is essentially reversed to drop the metatarsal down. That should be done, to avoid arthritis at the bunion joint. You're young, so this should be done. Why was it done initially? Good luck. Dr. Latva ...Read more
Swollen and painful sole from arch to heel. Seems plantar fasciitis. Icing and stretching helped. Is hiking / walking recommended? What else?
Plantar fascitis: Most common cause of heel pain is from plantar fasciitis, a pull/sprain of the plantar fascia from where it attaches to the heel bone on the btm of the foot.
