What is the best treatment for Achilles tendinitis? Evidence-Based Answer: Eccentric exercises are effective and NSAIDS may be effective for short-term pain relief with Achilles tendinitis. Corticosteroid injections, cryotherapy, night splinting, and heel braces have not been proven to be effective (SOR: B, systematic reviews of low-quality RCTs).
