Eccentric stretching is all about lengthening your muscles through tension and contraction. For example, when you raise up onto your toes, your calf muscles shorten, and when you descend, your calf muscles lengthen. Medical evidence shows that eccentric stretching is one of the best exercises for treating Achilles tendonitis.*
When you are not in pain, work on some eccentric exercises such as calf raises. Perform calf raises by standing on the edge of a step, lifting your heels until you’re up on your toes, then slowly lowering your heels below the step, and repeat.
