Heel Pain – Achilles Tendinopathy Eccentric Heel Drops
Start standing with both feet halfway off a step. Push through both of your big toes to lift your heels up as high as possible.
Remove the unaffected leg, and then slowly lower down the affected foot into full range below the level of the step. Bring back the unaffected leg and push through both feet once again, repeating the exercise.
Perform this exercise for 3 sets of 10 repetitions.
This is a great exercise in the later stages of Achilles tendinopathy which is a condition involving the overuse of the Achilles tendon.
