I have been suffering from recurring achilles tendinopathies for the last 2 or 3 years, which I believe began when I incorrectly got myself a pair of arch supporting trainers.
When I run now, I have noticed that I seem to land on the outside of my forefoot, which I think must be keeping me in this loop of achilles pain that won't seem to shift.
I am working on improving dorsiflexion, as well as finally committing to the eccentric heel-drop training, but am concerned about re-educating my gait properly in case this is a crucial factor. Could weakness of my lateral hip musculature be a factor here as well?
Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks!!
