WHY WE GET THE PAIN –As with most tendonopathies, they usually occur due to overload. Where there is a repetitive strain and load without enough rest or recovery.
Work through the ankle joint to mobilise the area as well as some soft tissue/dry needling work through the calf muscles.
They will Also prescribe you with appropriate exercises and come up with a management plan to modify training load appropriately.
Tendons typically take longer to heal than a muscle strain, as there is a poor blood supply.
