Finished 2 weeks of rest and 5 sessions of physio for achilles' tendon inflammation. Full marathon starting in next 48 hrs should I attempt.?

I'd wait: I've personal experience with this ailment. Because of your recent tendinitis, therapy, and rest, i would start slowly back to running. Incorporate proper achilles & calf stretching exercises, l prior to and after running. Use a foam roller for your calfs and hamstrings to keep the muscles pliable. Your mileage should be significantly reduced and very gradually increased. Just a start re: advice. ...Read more

I have inflammation in my ankle tendons and I have done everything my doctor told me to do but i'm still in a lot of pain I am still in a lot of pain and can't take any more painkillers and the doctor said I have to come back in two weeks if pain hasn't g

Tendonitis : Tendonitis can be very frustrating. Tendons do not receive the same nice blood supply as bones do, so they can take a long time to heal. And the ankle tendons take even longer because we're using them to walk while we attempt to heal. The single best way to treat a tendonitis is to rest the tendon, and nothing rests it more than a nice hard cast for 4-8 weeks. Yes, i know that is something no one wants or is even something that's practical to do, but if you can tolerate this, it does work better than anything else, albeit a high price to pay for relief. Acupuncture will also probably help, but nothing beats simply not using the tendons. I would not recommend physical therapy, at least not until you've healed sufficiently. The last thing you need to heal is to move it around. But once healed, especially after coming out of a cast, physical therapy will work wonders in getting your muscles toned back up and strong again. Finally, given that i don't know if it was an injury that precipitated your pain, i would wonder whether the bulk of your pain is due to tendonitis or something else that's yet to be discovered. If you don't seem to be improving, perhaps an MRI would disclose a tendon tear, which would easily explain your lack of progress. Hope this helps. Feel better. ...Read more
