[5️⃣TENDINOPATHY FAQs ]❓ _ ☝🏻these are 5 FAQs I am often asked by clients who are rehabilitating tendons πŸ‘€ _ πŸ‘‰πŸ» I threw them to @tendinopathyrehab (Specialist Tendinopathy Physio & Assoc Professor πŸ‘¨‍🏫) recently on a @physicalperformanceshow Expert Edition 1️⃣6️⃣1️⃣. Below is a brief summary with quotes from @tendinopathyrehab: _ 1️⃣ Is cortisone bad? ‘We don’t know, the jury is still out. It can be bad if have a lot of it (opinion)’ πŸ’‰ . 2️⃣ Why does it warm up (24hrs later)? ‘Tendon pain & symptoms will manifest , you often will find it gets better with activity-the next day is when you flare if what you have done has been too much the prior day’ πŸ• . 3️⃣ Can’t I just I get shockwave therapy to fix it? ‘No-shockwave will help for some people (approx. half) with pain, most people just get short term relief, by and large what we know from the evidence & clinical experience is that it is not going to be the ‘fixer’ for most people’ ➡️ . 4️⃣ Is this bump on my tendon bad? ‘Not necessarily. The bump is there to stay, it doesn’t necessarily get better. If you have a bump but nil pain, there is potential to go on and rupture the achilles tendon -good progressive rehab program will hopefully mitigate the risk of rupture’ ⬇️ . 5️⃣ Am I at risk of rupturing the tendon if the achilles is sore? ‘No. From the evidence the risk is very very small. The risk for people with tendon pain of rupturing is less than 1% overall’ 🧐 _ ‼️If you know a runner or someone this can help please tag them in ✋🏻 _ ❓Q’s and comments are welcome _ πŸ“ŒTo learn more about tendon rehabilitation tune into Expert Edition of @physicalperformanceshow feat. @tendinopathyrehab available wherever you get your podcasts @itunes @spotify @soundcloud @stitcherpodcasts or jump over to bio link-I hope you benefit from the learnings ✅ . . . #tendon #rehabilitation #podcast #physiotherapy #physio #sportsphysio #running #tendrehab #sportsphysio #tendontuesday @pogophysio
