Have been suffering with achilles tendonitis since May. I have tried periods of rest but don't seem to be able to get the injury completely better and long periods of running are out of the question. Any hints or tips for rehabilitating my achilles would be gratefully received.

One area to consider focusing on is the calf. I had pretty severe achilles problems last year that ended up being either caused or worsened by tightness in my calf. A roller stick twice a day gave me pretty quick relief and has continued to keep the problem from reoccurring as I have kept it in my daily post-run activities. My routine is 20-25 up & down strokes from just below the back of the knee to just above the ankle, one set on the instep side of the calf, one set down the middle, and one set along the outside. Stop above any significantly sore spot on the achilles itself. I use a brand called "The Stick," but there are many brands that will give similar results. Good luck.

Thanks Mark - will give it a try.
