Talking Tendons 2: Tendinopathy Rehabilitation & Prevention

Talking Tendons 2: Tendinopathy Rehabilitation & Prevention

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. Talking tendons 1 explains WHY and HOW we get a tendinopathy, but now in talking tendons 2 we look at some universal principles to rehabilitate and prevent tendon pain!

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

We learn 3 stages to recovery:

  • Stage 1: Firstly, identify daily tasks and positions that will be compressing the tendon.
  • Stage 2: Then, tendons love load! but how do we progress?
  • Stage 3: Lastly, throughout stage 2 carefully balancing what running loads can be tolerated.
