Tendinopathy treatment has evolved significantly over the past few years. We now know a lot more about utilising loading beyond previous eccentric programs, as well as when and how our patients will best respond to retraining biomechanics.
In this video on Achilles Tendinopathy in Runners, Russell Wright presents a significant update, incorporating the latest research on assessment, differential diagnosis, loading programs, passive treatment, running assessment and retraining. Learn how to approach the different stages of tendinopathy (according to the Continuum of Tendinopathy proposed by Jill Cook and Craig Purdam), different loading programs, as well as how and when your patient can return to running while continuing to progress their treatment.
Watch this video now to make sure your treatment of tendinopathies is up to date, and get some great new treatment ideas.
