We focus this week on shockwave therapy, inspired by a hot off the press study by Leone et al. 2016. They investigate the effects of shockwave therapy on stem cells derived from tendon.
I was inspired this week by a recent review entitled ‘Hormones and tendinopathies’ to ponder the link between these two. As always, have tried to think of an applicable angle for clinicians (to help in our mission of joining the clinical dots), so have included ‘The worlds shortest guide to considering risk of tendon pain in your patients’.
The core mission of this blog is to improve the clinical knowledge and skills of busy clinicians by discussing research and how it fits into clinical practice. I like the analogy of ‘joining the dots’, because I am sure that like me, many clinicians feel they would love to have a good grasp of all the information out there and how it can make them a better clinician.
Great blog this week – one of my favourite topics in jump biomechanics and patellar tendinopathy, as well as a study investigating an ankle foot orthotic and tibialis posterior.
Happy new year – hope all the readers have a wonderful 2016. This year I will do a weekly tendinopathy research update to make sure you are always up to date.
Clinical gems and awesome management models. Your patients will love you for it!
