Managing Lower Limb Tendinopathies

Docent : Dr Seth O’Neill

Inhoud : 

In the general population lower limb tendinopathy will affect up 12% of population at any one time with up to 60% of more active/athletic populations. Many of these patients fail to seek or get appropriate treatment. Unfortunately many of these individuals suffer from their problem for many years. These disorders can often be chronic and debilitating, preventing individuals from participating in physical activity leading to long term health consequences.

Currently there is a mismatch between the evidence base for tendinopathy management and common clinical management. This course will bridge that gap and improve clinical competence of the therapists participating. This will directly and most importantly improve patient outcomes.
The course uses the current and emerging evidence base to inform the practical management of patients with lower limb tendinopathy.

Gedetailleerde inhoud :

– Aetiology of tendinopathy
– Pain in tendinopathy
– Risk factors for tendinopathy
– Loading – what is it and is it useful?
– Clinical testing and diagnostics (Achilles, patella, gluteal, tibialis posterior, peroneal, hamstring, and Plantarfasciopathy)
– Rehabilitation exercises for all Lower limb tendinopathies
– Adjuncts – when and what
– Measuring impact – proving effectiveness- which outcome measure should we be using.
– Managing the person not the disease – what do we need to change?


Leerdoelen :

The training session will utilise a mix of teaching styles – problem based learning, lectures, seminars, brain storming, practical workshops and background reading.
This course aims to bring the science and art of managing people with tendinopathy together and will lead to greater:
– Understanding of the aetiology of tendinopathy – tensile and compressive loads
– Awareness of Pain and tendinopathy – considering the evidence and the patient
– Awareness of risk factors for tendinopathy and how to target these.
– Understanding of treatment options – particularly loading and load management
– Clinical skills necessary for successful tendinopathy treatment – managing the person not the disease
– Understanding of why can management fail and how to prevent this?

The knowledge gained from this course will improve the clinical outcomes achievable with patients suffering lower limb tendinopathy.
