Thanks for this video –
What are your thoughts on isometric heel lifts (full height for mid portion 5 x 45 sec SL holds and only up half way for insertional to reduce compression at insertion….) for pain reduction in initial treatment ….prior to starting heavy loading program ??
And also I tend not to advise stretching for insertional but I do for mid portion …your thoughts ?
Hi Anna, thanks for chiming in. this is an important point you raise, becasue the management of insertional vs midsubstance Achilles tendinopathy is very different, and the compression aspect is very important. i discuss this in detail at https://www.bartoldclinical.com/achilles-tendon-2/ and also at https://www.bartoldclinical.com/achilles-tendon/
Hope this helps! Best Simon
