Talking Tendons 1: Tendinopathy 101

Talking Tendons 101

On The Run Smarter Podcast we begin a new mini-series on tendon pain and tendinopathy. Because most lower limb tendinopathies react and rehab the same way, we can learn the common principles and significantly enhance your running intelligence. So, to kick off talking tendons 1 we cover tendon basics.

  • Learn the different tendon pain terminology: Tendinopathy, Tendinosis, tendinitis.
  • Learn about the tendon structure continuum: Reactive, dysrepair, Degenerative.

Firstly, we explore the 3 main reasons why we get tendinopathy. First we have overload, then compression and lastly the lack of recovery or tissue tolerance. Listen to the entire episode to learn risk factors and why we don’t rely heavily on biomechanics.
