Do you remember the last patient you treated with lateral hip pain or Achilles’ tendon pain, from today, last week or last month. Did you nail your diagnosis? Did your patient have any pathology, inflammatory arthritis or red flags pretending to be tendon pain?
If your patient has inflammatory arthritis causing their tendon pain, they’re going to need a completely different treatment plan to your midportion tendinopathy patients if you want them to make any improvement. What are the key questions to help you identify red flags like inflammatory arthritis? In this webinar with Paul Kirwan, you will discover red flags you need to keep an eye out for, and an easy way to remember the questions you need to ask your tendon pain patients.
How can you differentiate Achilles tendinopathy from Plantaris involvement, sural nerve involvement, or Posterior ankle impingement? Paul will help you identify and differentially diagnose intratendinous tears, paratenonitis and tendinopathy of Tibialis posterior, FDL or FHL.
You will also identify whether corticosteroid injections, PRP or ESWT are helpful additions to your treatment.
In Part 1 you discovered why patients develop tendinopathy, common challenges you’ll face, how to individualise treatment, and how long it will take your patients to get better.
In the next part in this webinar series (Part 3), available next week, you will journey through tendinopathy treatment, and how to use eccentrics, isometrics, isotonics and plyometrics. You will discover how to structure your exercise program, decide on the best rehab approach and know which treatments you NEED to avoid.
