My right achilles went about 3 weeks ago and I have been referred to a physio, who I am seeing once a week. She told me to try a little running (2 mins run, 2 mins walk, up to 10 mins max, followed by 5 mins run, 5 mins walk) but the achilles still hurts.
I have to do quite a bit of driving, which I cannot get out of, and which only seems to aggravate things. Doc has prescribed ibuprofen.
Since this injury happened, I have tried a pilates/yoga, body pump and a little cycling, but all just seem to result in pain the following day.
Last year I broke a bone in my other foot and 7 weeks sitting still drove me crazy. I am desperate to find some kind of cardio I am able to do, but equally dont' want to prolong the period of injury.
This is the first time I have had achilles problems. Can someone give me some advice please?
