Hey Charliefederer, thanks man. But I still want a few questions answered: 1) Once the inflammation subsides, is the elliptical and stationary bike low impact enough so it won't hinder the healing? 2) Over the past few months where I've been managing this minor injury, I observed no loss in stamina and strength in the tendon. Also, it's asymptomatic while I'm playing. However, once I shut it down, it's like a raging storm on the back of my heel. Why is that?
