Tendon Issues

Eccentric Exercise

Tendonitis and tendonosis commonly affect the Achilles, patellar tendon, rotator cuff, and lateral epicondylar tendons "tennis elbow". These conditions sometimes become chronic as tendons generally do not have a good blood supply. We treat difficult tendon conditions with a comprehensive approach including myofascial release, instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), extracorporeal shockwave (ECSWT), laser therapy, Kinesio Taping, stretching and specific exercises to improve collagen elasticity, tolerance to loading and promote tissue healing. Additionally, we assess for contributing factors such as improper posture, positioning and ergonomics to reduce the chance of recurrence.
