If you have chronic achilles tendonitis, best thing for you is to perform a regular regimen of concentric exercises for the ankle. It will strengthen the joint. I've always hated having supports because it gives you a false sense of security. Its ok but remember you still have an underlying problem to address. I sometimes chuckle at the supports I see people wearing on the courts. This one gentleman I started observing about 1 year ago first started with both TE supports, then he started adding bilateral knee supports, now he's got all of that combined with bilateral ankle supports. One day as we sat, he kept complaining of pain all over his body so I asked him if he was doing anything outside of tennis for exercise and was surprised when he said no. Well there lies the problem.
