Learn the 3 factors that will help your tendinopathy patient recover fast:  
1/ Thorough assessment: Confirming the tendon is the cause of the pain 
2/ Advice issued to your patient: specific tendon advice that improves your patients recovery 
3/ What exercises you prescribe: specific tendon exercise prescription 

This course will also help you:

  • Refresh the anatomy of a tendon and understand the cellular process involved in tendinopathy
  • Understand the risk factors of tendinopathy (including metabolic disease, hyperlipidaemia, menopause, as well as over-training/overuse)
  • Identify patients at risk of tendinopathy and implement steps to minimise risk
  • How to successfully assess and determine that the tendon is the cause of pain
  • Be able to implement the tendinopathy treatment continuum (from sub-acute stage to return to sport). Gain loads of great exercise ideas for your patient at every stage of their rehab. Learn specific advice that assists your patient's recovery.
  • Other treatments: what other treatments are useful/not useful and when to refer (massage, foam rolling, Physio, injections)
  • Imaging – when to refer to GP, what to look for in imaging reports

When the tendon isn’t the cause of pain – understand what other injuries can occur at the same joint.
