Achilles tendonitis- is boot or brace better?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Diagnosed last week with left ankle. Same foot had All American Surgery 4 years ago.

Provider said to use RICE for 10 days and if no better to seek PT before returning for follow-up. For support said to use ankle brace or boot. Which is better? I am returning to teaching this week and will be on my feet

Thank you
