I am walking the northern Camino, strained my left Achilles tendon the day before I left North a America. It hurt a little in the airports, I've walked one day to San Sebastien and it hurts worse as I re- injured it with a few tweaks on the trail. Have decided to take a day off here, am icing it and taking Advil, may bike some of I'm able. Any advice out there would be appreciated:
How long to stay off it? Any treatment recommendations? Is it dangerous to walk on it if I can stand there pain? Should I consider taping it or putting on an ace bandage?
