What’s the deal with gluteal strength and patellar tendinopathy: big fish, small fish, or not even in the sea?

This week’s podcast flows on from the last episode which looked at gluteal tendinopathy rehab and will focus on the tenuous and sometimes convoluted relationship between gluteal strength and patellar tendinopathies.


I have reviewed some new research that aims at clarifying the information out there. 




If you haven’t had a chance to have a listen to the last episode of 'Talking Tendons' which looked at evaluating education and exercise interventions in gluteal tendinopathies please do (link below). Also, keep commenting and letting me know what you would like to hear more of.

If you're interested in understanding and assessing some of the most common lower limb tendinopathies why not take a look at my online course Mastering Lower Limb Tendinopathy? There is some great info in there.
