"It is my experience that time off is rarely a solution for an injury. You need to FIX the problem. Time off may or may not make it feel better but the problem will come back if you don’t fix the issue. Also with tendon issues time off tends to weaken the area and can make running hurt much worse after the layoff- the opposite of what you’re looking for. Not saying there is never a time for time off, just saying that taking time off without proper treatment is very ineffective."
