Exercise dose: Is it important for tendinopathy rehabilitation?
Monitoring Physical Activity Using Wearable Technology in People With Achilles Tendinopathy Undergoing Physiotherapy Treatment: A Feasibility Prospective Cohort Study
Exercise is a recommended treatment for many pain and musculoskeletal conditions, including tendinopathy. It is really clear in other areas such as exercise for general health (e.g., heart health) that the more exercise you do, the better. Things don’t really work in this linear way for pain. Pain is complex. Maybe doing more exercise will make our pain and musculoskeletal patients stronger and more functional, but why should it improve their pain?
Great blog this week. A rare foray into the upper limb with a look at an interested RCT by Christ Littlewood and his group from the UK.
A super blog this week â€“ all about the effects of detraining and deconditioning on tendon. An interesting topic so have taken the liberty to go off on a few tangents with some interesting clinical messages.
Clinical gems and awesome management models. Your patients will love you for it!View course
