Dealing with specific injuries on Talking Tendons 3

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. Firstly in talking tendons 1 we explained WHY and HOW we get a tendinopathy, but now on talking tendons 3 we get practical and break down Achilles, High hamstring & gluteal tendinopathy into 5 categories:

  • Generic causes & common training errors

  • Running biomechanical considerations
  • Lastly, we look at differential diagnosis
