Achilles issue

(1/2) > >>

19reading87:
For years Iíve always had a dodgy achilles in my left foot. Iíve always tried to manage it the best I can. Iíve seen doctors and physios, had treatment and the last specialist said I needed a cortisone injection but didnít want to give it me due to the potential risks it offered.

Iím constantly having to ice after exercise, but would love to know if anybody has had a similar issue and how they overcome it? Whenever I exercise it swells up massively and I struggle to walk, the first 2 games this season have left me in agony.

Cheers in advance 

Real Munson:
See if you can get a reply from Steffan Jones or Ross Dewar on Instagram as they seem to be two of the better fast bowling coaches and have talked about this in the past. I'm sure I've seen them post drills on Insta about strengthening ankles etc.

I have struggled with my left achillies since 2010 - I'm sure carrying quite a few extra pounds doesn't help me!

Assume tried basics like trying different styles of footwear? back in the day when I used to attempt to charge in I suffered badly but found a shoe change made some difference

Buzz:
As someone who has ruptured his achillies and been operated on, all I can say is asking the Internet for help probably isn't your best bet.
Going to a sports/cricket focused physio might be a better option for management of the issue.

The only reason I mentioned Steffan Jones in particular is that I asked him once and he was decent enough to advise. Just I deleted the reply. From what I've seen, he seems one of few people combining bowling coaching with strength training, including how to ensure all your tendons are firing properly and training potentially weak areas, such as the achilies.
