How do I avoid aggravating the Achilles tendon?
Asked a year ago
I just got diagnosed with Achilles Tendonitis. Should I invest in shoes with softer heel counters to avoid irritating the injured tendon? What else do you recommend I do for treatment and to aid the healing process? Also, how long would you reckon it will take for the AT to heal?

You can use heel counters to avoid aggravating the Achilles tendon. Heel counters minimize the effect of loading on the Achilles tendon. Other methods include rest, ice, physical therapy, and surgery. Recovery after Achilles tendonitis depends on the cause, severity of the injury, promptness of treatment and approach. Generally, complete recovery should happen in four to six months.
