by David Pope

What causes tendon breakdown? What are the stages of tendinopathy, and how do they effect your treatment? Is treatment just about eccentric training? When should NSAID’s be used?

This is part of the great discussion I had with Jill Cook about tendons and tendinopathy. We also chatted about some other aspects of tendinopathy, including

  • Factors that contribute to tendinopathy beyond biomechanics
  • Eccentrics – what is the future of training to rebuild tendons
  • Return to sport or running after tendinopathy
  • Avoiding tendinopathy
  • Treatment at each stage of tendinopathy
  • Rehabing achilles tendinopathy
  • Rehab for hamstring tendinopathy

plus we related all of these to clinical scenarios. Enjoy!
