Lower limb tendinopathy

Instructor: Jill Cook (Australia)

Extra editie!


Tendinopathy is a common complaint presenting to clinicians. It can be persistent and resistant to treatment.
Understanding the pathology and pain and the role of different loads in tendinopathy is essential to provide the clinician with scientific approaches to the assessment and management of a person with tendinopathy. This knowledge will also provide the clinician with the knowledge to sift through all the treatment options in the literature and on the internet, to be able to provide the right advice to their clients.

The course will be a combination of lecture and practical demonstrations and practice. There will be opportunity for questions and discussions.

The learning objectives of the course are to:
• Be able to confidently distinguish tendon pain from other causes of patient pain
• Know the role of imaging (ultrasound, MRI) in management of tendon pain
• Be aware of the rationale for the 4-stage treatment approach that includes isometric strengthening, isotonic exercises, energy storage exercises and sport-specific rehabilitation
• Assess the patient’s capacity and devise a treatment program to address specific limitations in capacity that are relevant for that patient’s goals
