Achilles Tendonitis Treatment

I've been working on my Achilles a lot. This week I stumbled on a neat trick.

For some time I've been wearing neoprene anklets to keep the Achilles warm. I work from home so I can wear them around the house. Some night's I've worn them to bed.

A mate of mine suggested icing the Achilles, which I've been doing after my walk/run. I filled an empty cool drink bottle up with water, placed it in the freezer and then rested by Achilles on it.

It's OK.

BUT, the last couple of days I've started putting a couple of ice cubes down the back of the neoprene anklet.

While I'm working the ice slowly melts. I don't know where the water goes and I don't care.

I think it's working.

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned, and if you've got persistent achilles tendonitis get yourself a pair of neoprene anklets and slip ice down the back of them.
