I love your videos! I injured my Achilles doing reps stepping up onto a park bench since my gym has closed due to Cov19. Stay healthy love from England!😃

Ciaran Mac says:

I hate my achilles…..another damn relapse!!!!

Carrol Lindsay says:

Your video showing treatment methods for achilles tenderniris is excellent. I am on the right tract to healing but it hurts sometimes. What is a usual time for healing without any or some heel pain.

Alec Bailey says:

I love your videos but I'm a physio and I would like to understand your reasoning for providing stretching for tendonitis? Tendons can be likened to an energy store, when you need to jump or run (basically have explosive power) tendons provide that as they are like a coiled spring especially in the lower limb. Tendons in the upper limb are more positional and for posture. I thought it was common consensus throughout the physio world that by stretching lower limb tendons such as the achilles tendon youre taking the tendon further away from its optimum because as I said they provide explosive power/ they don't want to be stretched when inflammed (tendonitis). Therefore I would provide muscle strenghtening and actually advise against stretching

capeheartriz says:

what I find problem in the day doing the exercises or walking…and other exercises I do 3x a week for shoulders…BUT…at night the pain increases….and especially 24 hours later… its difficult to judge if I am over doing the exercises or should I just expect this to happen???

Shawn Laib says:

I have had achilles tendonitis in both feet for several years now. The pain comes and goes. What is the likelihood of rupturing the tendon?

Luis Balladares says:

I’ve seen videos where stretching is discouraged because it separates the tendon fibers vs bringing them together. Could you share additional perspective on stretching?
