Step 2. Rest your sore leg
You shouldn't exercise for several days to give the injured tendon time to heal. You may need to switch to exercises that reduce the stress on your Achilles tendon.
Swimming or light walking can be a good alternative while the injury is healing. You should reduce the intensity and duration of your exercise even after resuming your normal workouts
Step 3. Use an ice pack or ice wrapped in a towel for 15 minutes after training when you experience pain or swelling in the tendon
Step 4. Wrap the foot and lower leg with an elastic bandage or bandage tightly
Compression helps reduce swelling and mobility in the injured tendon.
Step 5. Raise your foot above chest level to reduce swelling
Your doctor may suggest that you sleep with your injured foot on a raised platform.
Step 6. Take your prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve inflammation and reduce pain
For example, ibuprofen or naproxen.
Step 7. Do stretching exercises on the appropriate muscles to help the tendon heal and prevent future problems
Your doctor or physical therapist can show you suitable stretching exercises to do. Step 8. Buy and wear over-the-counter or prescribed orthotics that will adjust the heel or ankle and provide extra cushioning to help the tendon heal.
