So basically for intertional Achilles tendonitis: No dorsiflexion! Instead do eccentrics on flat surface with bend knee.

Andrew Coles says:

Regarding insertional tendonitis – is there a clear time of when you know it is time to gradually begin dropping the heels into dorsiflexion? I've been careful to avoid any weight bearing in that position for a couple weeks now and can confirm the flare ups stopped. If I stretch my calves or go into dorsiflexion previously it does slightly aggravate the heel. I am trying to learn when its okay to start working up to a heel drop from a step versus staying on the floor.

William Anderson says:

I have been utilizing this protocol with success, but have developed medial heel pain felt when reaching down to my foot in standing. Any thoughts on this? (Def not PF pain)

Quincy Sutton says:

Thank you. My pt appt is a month out & as a trainer I know these exercises but it’s nice to get some feedback that I’m doing it right

Dominic Borg says:

There's some interesting research by Dr Keith Baar on tendons. Basically he suggests intake of Gelatin or Collagen + Vit C 30-60mins prior to exercises. Same as the Alfredson protocol it is done twice a day however with isometrics and not eccentrics. He explains isometrics (total 5-8 mins) are better as it gives more creep. This is what I will be trying next.

Paul Chromik says:

Thanks for those great exercises and knowledge-sharing ! 🙂

Dan Thomas says:

Joe Mcqaude says:

I have constant calf pain, ive had total.knee replacement surgery on both knees ive been told by my doctor i have tendonopothy can i do the exercises on the video

Aaron Chubb says:

Should I do the uninjured side too so I'm keeping some symmetry in my leg muscles?

Daan Michiels says:

I have achillis tendinopathy but I also have a pes planus. My fysio told me not to do the alfredson protocol beceause I would only work in the wrong, weakened foot position. He advised me to do excercises for my intrisic foot muscles so my foot position is normal in terminal stance, pre-swing and thereby relieves the pressure on my achillis eventually. What is your advise on this?

Mbongeni Dlamini says:

Very helpful! Thanks

aldo says:

Should I touch the wall when I do this exercise?

Boris Stoilov says:

When the heel drops under toes level calf muscle gets overstretched and the achilles inflamates. Best recovery exercise is calf muscle raises/without the eccentric fall/ .

alexandre poussier says:
