🦵 ACHILLES TENDON PAIN 🦵⠀

❌ Rest definitely isn’t always best.⠀

There is a very small window in the early stages (1-2 weeks) following the onset of Achilles tendon pain when relative rest, or at least a significant reduction in loading, is likely to be helpful.⠀

Other than that, a progressive loading programme is necessary to improve the load tolerance of the tendon and get you “back on your feet” (aka doing all the weird and wonderful things you love to do 🎾⚽️🏉🏑🏏⛷🤸‍♀️⛹️‍♂️🏌️‍♀️🧗🏻‍♀️🏃‍♂️)⠀

Above is a visual guide from the @physionetwork demonstrating a series of exercise/activities in the order that they progressive load the Achilles tendon.⠀

The general rules are:⠀
1️⃣ Pain should reach no more than 2-3/10 on a visual pain scale during the activity. ⠀

2️⃣ Pain & stiffness should be better or no worse 24-48 hours following the activity.⠀

✅ If in any doubt, consult your physiotherapist for some guidance about where to start and how to progress.⠀

❄️ ICE ICE BABY❄️⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
So you have new injury, should you ice it?⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
Inflammation typically peaks 2-4 days following an injury and it was traditionally thought, during this stage, that ice was beneficial.⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
The main reason for this, being that cold causes constriction of the blood vessels and limits the leak and spread of inflammatory chemicals to nearby tissues, thereby limiting the extent of the injury. ⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
However, new research 👇 has shown that the effects of cooling on the inflammatory process are actually minimal. ⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
Couple this with the current understanding that inflammation is a positive process which promotes tissue healing and repair. Do we want to be inhibiting it in the first place?⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
🤔 BUT WHAT IF IT MAKES IT FEEL BETTER?⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
Ice can provide an analgesic effect. So, considering the above, if you want to use it for pain relief, you will not be doing any harm. 10 minute intervals are sufficient though! ⠀⠀⠀
