What Brodie has learnt from: Patellar Tendinopathy

Throughout this new weekly series, Brodie talks about his personal experiences with particular injuries and shares the lessons he has learnt along the way. You will gain insight into injury management & prevention. This episode dives into patellar tendinopathy. Here are some of the topics:

  • How does a patellar tendinopathy usually behave? What are the usual symptoms throughout the pathology?
  • Why we need to address our weak links, rather than just avoiding aggravating factors. Eventually your past injuries will arise if they are not address head on!
  • The power of isometric strengthening exercises for tendons. Isometric strengthening can be perfect before running and also to implement during particular flare ups.
  • Why you shouldn’t wait until you are pain free before running. This is a mistake runners often make when they are afraid to load up a sore tendon.
