MANAGEMENT OF TENDINOPATHIES WITH ULTRASOUND TISSUE CHARACTERISATION (UTC)

Just received a really nice little article written by Jarrod Antflick and good friend and colleague Chris Myers!

They have been working with UTC and tendinopathies over the last eighteen months or so and have some really good data and thoughts on rehab now.

This newer imaging technique should really make you think about the way you load tendinopathies from now on…

Looking at rehab specifically, the authors highlight a few key points:

Consider the irritability of the tendon when designing a loading programme. 3 x 15 reps eccentric loading is not always the solution!

Consider adding in moderate and heavy isometric exercises.

Don’t forget Soleus strengthening!

Be cautious loading into end-of-range with irritable tendon  or if you suspect the plantaris involvement.

Make sure you download a copy for the full read!

Cheers guys!
