I have also been plagued with recurrent achilles tendon problems over the past two seasons (I run 400m). I have been doing the eccentric loading exercises and such, but I was wondering if anyone could give me an honest opinion on the following home ultrasound device: https://www.aidmytendon.com and whether it would be of any use for tendon healing and/or recovery as they claim?
My girlfriend reckons that I am too easily sucked in by advertising for overpriced gimmicky products so I thought I would ask for an opinion. Their claims for the device are pretty impressive but I realise that they are selling a product so its in their interests to hype it up (which they really have done). They also seem to have successfully saturated the net with their own promotion making it difficult to find independent reviews. I was hoping for opinions on whether you guys thought it was really worth the money because its not cheap (but if it saved me physio costs as they say)?
I'd be a little leary of home versions of ultrasound devices. While administration of the care is fairly easy (some PTs/ATs actually let athletes to it themselves) the machine itself and its settings are pretty important to proper and effective usage.
