Anyone have problems with the tendon in FRONT of the ankle?

I currently have Achilles Tendinitis as well as either tendinitis or a pulled tendon with a tendon in front of the ankle. It's the tendon that pulls the foot up. Has anyone had this problem? Any tricks for treating it? I went to physical therapy once and they have me basically bending my foot forward with my hand but I was wondering if anyone has any other advice. Thanks.

Re: Anyone have problems with the tendon in FRONT of the ankle?

Do you know the name of the tendon? I am in PT right now as well - are they doing anything else? Usually they start slow and build up- too get flexibility and then strengthen it.
