Overview

In Greek mythology, the nearly indestructible Achilles was felled by a single wound to his only weak spot: his heel. Just as he succumbed to this pinpoint piercing of an extremity, you too can be felled by trauma to the link between your leg and foot: your Achilles tendon. If the fearsome talons of Achilles tendinitis sink in - and hang on - your body is in trouble.

The hobbling pain of Achilles tendinitis can be torturous enough on its own, but things can get worse. The nagging, piercing shots of agony you might experience from Achilles tendinitis are often precursors to a more severe situation: complete rupture of the tendon. Doing nothing, and continuing on with the activities that caused Achilles tendinitis in the first place, can lead to this severe condition of Achilles rupture.

Don't let it. In the pages of Achilles Healing, you'll find an easy-to-follow, comprehensive guide to soothe the pain of Achilles tendinitis, make it go away in the shortest time possible, and bolster your defenses to shield your legs from further episodes of the dreaded occurrence. While sometimes a single, specific motion can really provide relief, a variety of maneuvers is usually the key.

Nurture and protect your body; heal your Achilles heel. This book shows you how.
