Event description

Description

Despite the high prevalence of tendinopathy particularly in individuals involved in running or jumping related sports, treatment outcomes continue to be sub-optimal with individuals experiencing persistent symptoms affecting daily function or athletic endeavors. The workshop will aim to address some of these issues by discussing the latest evidence and rationale for managing lower limb tendinopathies.

The workshop will cover aspects such as:

Theory

· Risk factors for the development of lower limb tendinopathy – can we see the danger coming or is it inevitable?

Practical

· Assessment of functional capacity in lower limb tendinopathy – how can we quantify individual function to ensure sufficient capacity following rehabilitation?

· Rehabilitation of lower limb tendinopathy – isometrics – heel drops – plyometrics – heavy slow resistance training? What, how and when?
