Achilles tendinopathy in 12yo girl

Question: Achilles tendinopathy in 12yo girl

Doed anyone have experience of Achilles tendinopathy in the young? This particular case involves a 12yo girl, she is a competitive swimmer and also does ballet. Symptoms have been present for several months but apart from some stretching has had no other treatment. I am intending to start on eccentric stretching, this appears to be the commonest conservative and effective treatment.
My only worry is the diagnosis given her age.
