Sometimes patients just don’t get better as you would expect them to. Tendinopathies can be difficult to treat and require a high level of clinical reasoning and skill to manage effectively. In this course, Ebonie Rio takes you through a variety of helpful tips to help you reevaluate a tendinopathy patient to investigate why they are not improving. She will take you through techniques such as differential diagnoses, evaluating for co-morbidities and carefully analysing the patient’s current management plan, to determine why there is a problem and to identify a way to make progress.


This course aims to equip the learner with a variety of skills to clinically reason why a person with a painful tendon is not making progress.
