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.

    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.

    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!

    Injection Therapy - What does the evidence tell us?

    Injection Therapy - What does the evidence tell us?

    Despite our best intentions, not everyone with tendinopathy will respond to conservative treatments. Clinicians need alternative options like injection therapy. Injections such as steroid and platelet-rich plasma continue to be popular for tendinopathy, and there are other emerging injections such as the high-volume injection.

    Something IS happening in the tendon! Collagen turnover in people with Achilles tendinopathy

    Something IS happening in the tendon! Collagen turnover in people with Achilles tendinopathy

    Understanding how tendon recovers from injury and adapts to load is so important and has huge implications on how we manage tendons and the education and advice that we provide patients. This podcast features a relatively new study providing insights into the collagen turnover in healthy tendons and those with tendinopathy, adding critical knowledge to what we know about tendon collagen adaptation over time.
