Re: achilles pain with running

If you really interested to run, I recommend that you always apply ice with compression on the painful area for 15 minute 5-6x / day. When you run apply a "kinesiotape" inhibitory technique on your whole gastrocnemius muscle for your muscle to have a faster recovery while your using it. Its too complicated to discuss the kinesiotaping of your gastrocnemius but its better to watch that kind of tape and taping technique in youtube.

Helps strengthen the kneecap mechanism by applying pressure on the tendon above the kneecap as well. This tends to reduce the forces of the quadriceps on the patella tendon and erosion of the under surface of the kneecap due to a possible misalignment of the quadriceps (Q-angle).
