A tendon is tissue that attaches muscle to the bone. It is flexible, tough and fibrous and it can withstand tension. A ligament extends from bone to bone at a joint, while a tendon extends from muscle to bone.

Tendons and muscles work together and exert a pulling force. Tendons and ligaments are tough and fibrous, but they are known as soft tissue, because they are soft compared with bone. 

The most common types of foot and ankle tendonitis are Achilles tendonitis, posterior tibial tendonitis, peroneal tendinosis, flexor tendonitis, and extensor tendonitis.

Common causes include:

Sudden injury

Repetition of a movement over time

Tendinitis often develops in people whose jobs or hobbies involve repetitive movements, as this aggravates the tendons.

Sports that involve repetitive movements can lead to tendinitis, for example, running, tennis, swimming, basketball, golf, bowling, and baseball.

Treating Tendonitis of the Foot

But now, instead of plain ice, the medically approved treatment of a Physicool Bandage Wrap, provides a combination of both compression and ice treatment all in one reusable bandage wrap.

Medicines. Your healthcare provider may tell you to take ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory medicines. These reduce pain and swelling. ...

Limiting activities. Rest allows the tissues in your foot to heal.

Apply a Physicool A Bandage for thirty minutes to one hour, 2-4 times per day. After training and evenings are important times. Especially evenings due to the weight that your foot has carried throughout the day, but a lunchtime treatment will definitely help. This will speed up recovery time and get you back to feeling yourself in no time. The cooling benefit will reduce pain and swelling whilst the compression will limit inflammation. Combined, Physicool will help speed up healing and get you back to what you love doing faster.
