Introduction

Lower limb tendinopathy can be very difficult to treat with multiple management strategies and theories suggested. At present, the strongest evidence supports the use of exercise as a management strategy, with tendon loading the only intervention that can change the strength and mechanical properties of a tendon. A 4-stage exercise based tendon rehabilitation programme has been proposed as an effective progressive loading intervention to manage tendinopathy. This programme also incorporates motor control retraining with tendon neuroplastic training. In this course, clinical specialist, Ebonie Rio discusses the fundamentals of rehabilitation and the 4 stage process of tendinopathy rehabilitation. She also briefly discusses the related management of sports players in-season and how to manage their expectations.
