Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Hello
You should use heat unless an injury occurred in the last several days.

More importantly, you should have this examined.

Achilles tendinitis can lead to rupture which can be serious.

Splinting and physical therapy might be involved at any given point.
