I have had mild ankle tendinitis (diagnosed by a Dr.) for the last year or so and have tried to keep it under control by stretching/icing while still training. It would surface after a few harder days of riding and go away after a couple days off, very frustrating. I've played with cleat position and seat height to try to fix it, with very little positive result.
So, now that the race season is done and I'm going to be busy relocating, I decided to take 3-6 weeks off the bike if need be and get this tendinitis thing cured once and for all. I have started icing several times a day, mild stretching and taking Ibuprofin 2x a day. I have done alot of web research on this and many sites mention the use of a home ultrasound system as being very helpful. Is it a valid treatment and can it be effective if I do it myself vs. a doctor? Does anyone have some positive treatment regimin/results that might be useful? Also, are there any bike fit experts in the Atlanta area (where we are relocating to) that might be worthwhile to visit?
Any help appreciated.
