hey guys..I'm sorry I'm new here and im not sure where to post my question. please direct to correct forum if im wrong. its about an ankle injury. Ive smashed my Achilles tendon at work about a week ago, i have a hard time making myself walk without out a limp, and even worse...i cant do squats.
i can get my foot perpendicular to my leg. i cant pull pull up on my foot any higher with out it hurting, and i cant extend my foot past 45 degrees with out it hurting. the Achilles tendon is slightly swollen(not much) and a little red.
when i do move it...i can almost hear/feel something inside there sliding/grinding against each other, but I'm not sure what that is cause its not a bone or anything .
i thought it would be better in a few days, but after a week, its no even a little better at all, maybe even a little worse.
is ther anythign i can do to help it heal faster? hot/cold packs?
or just off some time for it to rest?
