Hello,

the title says it all.

Since a couple of months I suffer from a tendinitis (Achilles). It is very painful and I had to stop operating for more then a month. I have medical, physiotherapeutic treatment. I startet a diet too to get my weight a bit down, but also to get the uric acid lower. Now, what else could I do to support the healing process? I appreciate every advise very much.

Thank you

Marc

Hi Marc,

 

I know it will sound strange to you and some of my friends don't understand it either. I didn't test it with the achille tendon but with my shoulder. I hurt my shoulder several months ago because of extensive training. So just by accident I tried out my old electric shocking device with positive result. The physiotherapist said that they use electric current with low voltage and my method is maybe a little rude but if it works. So whenever my shoulder hurt I used that stun gun and could train again. At present the shoulder is almost perfect again.

 

Good luck and hang loose,

The stun gun method sounds a little extreme, but they do sell devices in Canada that are portable electric stim units.

Having had tendonitis in my forearm, knee and shoulder, all I can say is that the best remedy is to rest it and do whatever physical therapy is prescribed. Achilles is a tough spot to have it in.

Good luck.

Thomas, very interesting, had a google and looked into it.

 

Very curious as I have suffered with tendinitis in my elbows on/off over the years, the best things I have found that helped me have been:

 

Using myofascial release tools, such as lacross balls, beastie balls, the Mobility WOD supernova and the firm rumble roller.

 

Having trigger point release therapy & the graston technique carried out on the affected areas by a trained practicioner.

 

Voodoo floss/muscle floss and manipulation of the elbow whilst under extreme compression from it.

 

These days I generally don't get any flare ups thankfully since I started using the above tools.

Found this:

I made exactly this exercise over one month before I went to the physiotherapist. I´ve got it from a yoga teacher. In my case it did not help a lot.

Jamie you remind me about the trigger point release therapy I had years ago for my back pain. Helped a lot...I have to google your other toys now.

Basically I see I have to become a bit more patient about it. It´s always hard to accept long during healing processes.

I had very good results with ART (Active Release Technique)

As far as I understand it it basically gets rid of scar tissue on tendons

that decrease their flexibility, which results in injury and pain.

 

I had a really bad kite surfing accident that obliterated my ankle, which I had never given the time

to properly heal.

 

This guy did magic for me. After years of pain walking I was pretty much pain free within to sessions.

Sorry Marc, That is not eccentric exercise with any real meaning. Unless done on the smith machine loaded up with 20% more than you can do 5RM eccentically its not going to help. It is probably best to do one leg at a time.

 

The quad macine might be better because you can overload that properly and safely.

 

For example my shoulder tendernitis. I can 5RM 55kg so I loaded the barbell with 65kg and push jerked it to overhead then lowered it down very very slowly and gently. When I had knee tendonitis I used the leg extension with both legs and let one let drop and lowered the weight down very slowly with the other leg and way way too much weight.

 

Don't go get exercises off yoga instructors. Get a physiotherapist that works with Powerlifters or Weightlifters (Oly lifts).

 

Good Luck!

"Idk if you have tried Ayurveda (Ancient Indian Medicinal System). For me it was a miracle. I learned a formula from iahas.com where the use soem herbs and spices to treat Tendinitis. Try this one 

Take 2 parts of Kaishore Guggulu, 2 parts of Musta, 2 parts of Manjistha and 3 parts of Guduchi. Take a quarter teaspoon of this mixture daily 3 times with warm water after a meal. You can get the buying option from the same site if you are from USA. 

Lmk if it helps.
