Tendon dysfunction is one of the most common soft tissue injuries that we see in our clinics.  It's not just related to sports injuries as many un-athletic and even sedentary people can experience tendon dysfunction. It's currently a hot topic of conversation among clinicians and experts online and so we have brought all the most up-to-date information together for you in this online course. This course will explore tendinopathy to give you a deeper understanding of the anatomy, function, pathologies, assessment and treatment based on the latest evidence available.


Refresh your knowledge of tendinopathy and review the very latest evidence and practices from the leading international experts.


  • Section 1 - Normal tendon anatomy and physiology
  • Section 2 - Pathological Processes
  • Section 3 - Tendinopathy Assessment – Risk Factors, Outcome Measures, Imaging and Pain
  • Section 4 - Treating Tendinopathy

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy professionals, clinicians and students.


Availability - this course is online and can be completed on your own schedule.

This course is divided into 4 sections/weeks and it is suggested (but not required) that each section be completed over the duration of approximately a week. Please note that no deadlines are applied and this course can be started and completed according to your own schedule. We expect the required elements of each section/week to take around 16-18 hours depending on your schedule and learning style. Additionally there are many optional resources provided and if you choose to review these the course could take longer to complete.

It’s not going to be easy, we’ll expect you to work hard for your completion certificate and Plus points! You won’t be sitting back and watching webinars, we’ll expect you to reading tasks, complete quizzes, perform literature searches and other learning activities. You’ll need to reflect on your own experiences and contribute them within the discussion forum, this is where we can learn from each other’s experiences and knowledge from all around the world! At the end of the course, when you have completed all of the required elements, you will be able to download a certificate of completion and 16 Plus points will be added to your personalised learning dashboard.

It is a very well-organised and thought-provoking course. It offers the tools you need to support your clinical judgements instead of a prescriptive 's one size fits all model. In addition, the calibre of people interviewed in the course is top shelf!
