The pain isnt enough to stop me walking on it or even running. Its more when im on my toes, skipping or pushing of the back foot to move forward. Its really hampering me big time so any advice is much appreciated. Do i need more rest? Are there supports and or bandages that people would suggest? I really want to get back into training as soon as possible.
Also any advice on prevention would be good too. Stretching obviously a key which i need to work on. What about recovery products i try to stay away from anything like that ( including protein shakes) but i am willing to try anything. Any foods that are suggested to to help prevention and recovery?? At the moment my diet is OK i dont eat crap but i dont eat great either admitadly
Thats alot of questions and very long winded i know but any help at all is really appreciated!!!
if you were having achilles problems ,you wouldn't be able to run.if you've damaged your ankle whilst running then maybe you are wearing the wromg type of shoes and need to checked for your running gait.
i couldn't see protein shakes helping any.
