The management of tendinopathy includes an appropriate level of activity, equipment changes, strength and flexibility training. Physical Evolution provides advice and education about tendinopathies, anatomy, activity and load modification. Our exercise program will include eccentric loading of the tendon and incorporate a stretching program targeting both the joint and surrounding muscle group. Hands on therapy techniques may also be applied such as deep transverse frictions, ice massage and ankle mobilisations.
Once symptoms have subsided a progressive home exercise program can be provided for specific return to sport, or activity goals. This ensures flare ups can be managed if they present during rehabilitation, and that further tendinopathies do not recur.
