Online Course: Tendinopathy Assessment

Speciality Classification
1 - 1.5 hours

A thorough assessment is essential in the management of tendinopathy. In the assessment you will not only confirm the diagnosis of tendinopathy and exclude other differential diagnoses, but also determine any contributing and risk factors. The correct diagnosis is important because this will guide the best management approach, which is quite different in tendinopathy compared to other conditions. In this course Ebonie Rio reviews the assessment of lower limb tendinopathy. She explains some key questions to ask in the patient interview, gives insight into clinical reasoning around different diagnoses and provides ideas on how to perform a physical examination.


This course aims to teach you about the subjective and objective assessment of tendinopathy.


This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  • Video
