hi i have had achilles pain from cross country for about 8 monthes. I have smashed and stretched and voodoo banded it but it feels like its almost losing some sensitivity compared to the other one which is normal and fine. Does anyone have suggestions? thanks
You may not be hitting the needed area.

What was the cause of the achillies pain?
Too much mileage too fast?
Not recovering from workouts?
Has anything else happened to the leg?
Pay attention to your calves too. When my calves get tight, the pain/discomfort is all in the achilles area, even though I am pretty sure my achilles are fine. Some calf smashing and long stretches made my ankles feel baby cheetah-esque again.
Although I’m definitely not a long distance runner, I recently have had a flare up of my achilles tendon.
