Posterior Ankle Spur/Pain


Hi Ducklings!!

After prolonged running/playing futbol, I often get pain around the posterior ankle where I assume the achilles inserts into the heel. It feels like tendonitis. I have had X-rays for problems with my anterior ankle which has shown some bone spurs around the posterior aspect of my heel.

My question is; is there anything I can do to reduce/prevent the pain? The pain doesnt bother me or stop me from doing anything, but I rather it not be there.

I already take about 1-1.5g of fish oil a day, cissus and turmeric supplements. I use a strassburg sock twice a week to aid my ankle flexibility.
