With the exception of xanthomas, your doctor initially treats Achilles tendon problems with conservative options. These may include rest, ice, compression wrap, and modifying your activities. Additionally, tendonitis may require immobilization while you need to keep weight off the leg if you have a peroneal tendon dislocation.
When conservative treatment fails to relieve your symptoms, your doctor may recommend surgical intervention to repair the damaged tendons.
