Rest and ice treatment is useful in early stages and an assessment is needed if you have had pain for more than 3-4 weeks.

An assessment is often needed for the twisting cause and might require prescription insole or advice about home taping.

As a last resort there is a new therapy done by the London Foot Pain Clinic, based in Wimbledon called ESWT which works even in the longest of suffers. Extra corporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) gets 8/10 sufferers of Achilles tendonitis a great improvement in their pain and only takes three treatments.
