- Q: I rolled my ankle while walking in February in the snow an was later diagnosed with tendonitis in my tibial tendon. I was in a walking boot for 3 months with minimal time on my feet. I am a dance teacher and taught dance from a chair for three months (yuck) Anyways, I did the whole physical therapy thing for 4 months and that helped a lot, but it is still hurting, not as bad, but the pain is still there and I can't jump on it yet. As a teacher I am on my feet for 5-10 hours a day(classes just started again yesterday. I have been off of it the whole summer as well) I also have foot orthotics in my shoes that helps support my arch, and I wear them with my dance shoes. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this injury and didn't have surgery on it...how long did it take for your tendon to completely heal? And do you have any tips other than ibuprofen and ice for healing?
- A: I will say that most cases I have seen have been post surgical. However, generally speaking, tendonous injuries take noctoriously long to heal (if they heal at all) and it is a gentle balance between doing the right strengthening exercises and not doing too much to inflame it. I would expect this to take a full year to really see how it will turn out. continue to wear your orthotics and complete your home exercise program...
