This podcast will delve deep into the best and most clinically relevant new studies on tendinopathy. The focus is what questions the researchers tried to answer and why, how they did it, what they found, and very importantly, the so what factor. That is, how can it be applied to the clinic and to individual tendinopathy patients.

Investigating pressure massage vs eccentric exercise in Achilles tendinopathy.

4/12/2020
In this episode I talk about a relatively new trial investigating pressure massage versus eccentric exercise for Achilles tendinopathy in a randomised trial. I hope you enjoy! Also, if you have some time on your hands during this time of isolation and need to catch up on CPD head on over to www.tendinoapthyrehab.com. I am offering my online Mastering Lower Limb Tendinopathy course for $295. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Isometric exercise and their effect on tendon pain

11/20/2019
Hi All, On this talking tendons episode, I dive into the very murky world of isometric exercise and their effect on tendon pain. A new study by Sinead Holden and team brings some (just a little) light to the evidence. I argue that isometrics are useful for managing tendinopathy, but using them for short term pain reduction is just the tip of the iceberg. Also if you're wanting to earn some extra CPD before Christmas check out my two upcoming workshops in December in Sydney and Melbourne...

Interview with Igor Sancho - Feasability of jumping and hopping as rehabilitation for Achilles tendinopathy.

11/1/2019
Hi All, In this episode of Talking Tendons I have an enjoyable chat with PhD student and Spanish physio, Igor Sancho. He has recently published a study that assessed the feasibility of using jumping and hopping as rehabilitation for people with Achilles tendinopathy. We discuss the study and how to apply these findings in clinic. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Isometrics in Tendinopathy: they are useful but they are not the cure for cancer

5/21/2019
Isometric exercise for tendinopathy has exploded onto the scene over the last few years. Unfortunately, the certainty of evidence surrounding their use is far less certain and compelling than what we are told about them but some people. They may work, but the reality is we don't fully understand how and for whom. This episode delves into this uncertainty and provides lots of top tips for how to use isometrics and when they are useful. Enjoy! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy...

Injection Therapy - What does the evidence tell us?

4/10/2019
Despite our best intentions, not everyone with tendinopathy will respond to conservative treatments. Clinicians need alternative options like injection therapy. Injections such as steroid and platelet-rich plasma continue to be popular for tendinopathy, and there are other emerging injections such as the high-volume injection.

Something IS happening in the tendon! Collagen turnover in people with Achilles tendinopathy

3/3/2019
Understanding how tendon recovers from injury and adapts to load is so important and has huge implications on how we manage tendons and the education and advice that we provide patients. This podcast features a relatively new study providing insights into the collagen turnover in healthy tendons and those with tendinopathy, adding critical knowledge to what we know about tendon collagen adaptation over time.

Does your psychological wellbeing affect your tendinopathy treatment outcome?

10/8/2018
In this podcast we consider some new research exploring psychological factors and tendinopathy. There is emerging evidence that, as per other musculoskeletal conditions and as you would expect, they do play a role. I discuss which ones appear to be most strongly linked with tendinopathies.

Finally some quality exercise research for the management of gluteal tendinopathy!

6/3/2018
Hi all, this episode we focus on two recent randomised controlled trials evaluating education and exercise interventions for gluteal tendinopathy, One of them is the best RCT I have read in ages. Well worth a look at their methods, findings and exercise interventions. Hope you enjoy! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Some cool new technology focused systematic reviews that will change our practice

5/7/2018
This episode we focus on technology use in rehab. I'm inspired by the patient will see you now by Dr Eric Topol which I recently read so this weeks podcast covers 2 technology focused systematic reviews. The first is on the efficacy of exergames for treating musculoskeletal pain, and the second is on basically the use of accelerometers and other wearable sensors to monitor rehab exercises. An exciting area that is set to grow hugely and will be part of all of our practices soon. References...

Non-uniform Achilles tendon strain: what is it and should we care?

4/1/2018
Hi all This week on Talking Tendons we discuss Non-uniform Achilles tendon strain and displacement and tackle the important questions…what is it? And should we care? The paper is by Prof Finni from Finland supported by an international team. This is an exciting space that has already and will continue to improve our understanding of tendon function and ultimately our ability to prevent and manage these injuries. Hope you enjoy.

Efficacy of PRP injections for tendinopathy...really?

3/6/2018
This episode I discuss a recent systematic review that concluded that PRP is more efficacious than control injections for tendinopathy, but the plot thickens when we scratch the surface a little. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
