This podcast will delve deep into the best and most clinically relevant new studies on tendinopathy. The focus is what questions the researchers tried to answer and why, how they did it, what they found, and very importantly, the so what factor. That is, how can it be applied to the clinic and to individual tendinopathy patients.

    Systematic review on plantarflexor muscle impairments in Achilles tendinopathy.

    Systematic review on plantarflexor muscle impairments in Achilles tendinopathy.

    In this episode I talk about a new systematic review on plantarflexor muscle impairments in Achilles tendinopathy. It is clear that the relationship is not as clear as what you might think, and there are also some very interesting insights to how plantarflexor dysfunctions may change following rehabilitation.

    Investigating pressure massage vs eccentric exercise in Achilles tendinopathy.

    In this episode I talk about a relatively new trial investigating pressure massage versus eccentric exercise for Achilles tendinopathy in a randomised trial. I hope you enjoy!

    Isometric exercise and their effect on tendon pain

    Isometric exercise and their effect on tendon pain

    Hi All,

    On this talking tendons episode, I dive into the very murky world of isometric exercise and their effect on tendon pain. A new study by Sinead Holden and team brings some (just a little) light to the evidence. I argue that isometrics are useful for managing tendinopathy, but using them for short term pain reduction is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Also if you're wanting to earn some extra CPD before Christmas check out my two upcoming workshops in December in Sydney and Melbourne (bookings).

    Interview with Igor Sancho - Feasability of jumping and hopping as rehabilitation for Achilles tendinopathy.

    Interview with Igor Sancho - Feasability of jumping and hopping as rehabilitation for Achilles tendinopathy.

    Hi All,

    In this episode of Talking Tendons I have an enjoyable chat with PhD student and Spanish physio, Igor Sancho. He has recently published a study that assessed the feasibility of using jumping and hopping as rehabilitation for people with Achilles tendinopathy. We discuss the study and how to apply these findings in clinic.

    Isometrics in Tendinopathy: they are useful but they are not the cure for cancer

    Isometrics in Tendinopathy: they are useful but they are not the cure for cancer

    Isometric exercise for tendinopathy has exploded onto the scene over the last few years. Unfortunately, the certainty of evidence surrounding their use is far less certain and compelling than what we are told about them but some people. They may work, but the reality is we don't fully understand how and for whom. This episode delves into this uncertainty and provides lots of top tips for how to use isometrics and when they are useful. Enjoy!
