Every injury is different.
Every person needs an individual solution.
Wether you've sprained your ankle, had an ACL repaired or struggling with hip, knee or ankle pain - you need the best advice and help to get back on track.
Tendinopathy is a painful tendon and has been referred to in the past as tendonitis or tendinosis.
It is attributed to achillies tendon, hip tendonitis tennis elbow, jumpers knee and plantar fascitis to name but a few.
Tendons go through a natural aging process and can develop small tears or areas of degeneration but this does not mean they have to be painful or that you have to stop the activities that you love to do.
Quite often the problem is associated with;
Weak tendon and associated structures.
Our movements or postures have cause tendon pain.
Overloaded the tendon too much and too quickly.
for tendonitis or tendopathy
Reduce the pain and discomfort as quickly as possible.
Start a progressive strengthening program directed at preventing recurrence and building the tissues strength and endurance.
Return to normal activity, with more advanced exercise program to prevent/reduce recurrence.
In more persistent cases shockwave therapy is very effective.
for plantar fasciitis & heel pain
Plantar fasciopathy or fascitis is a condition where the fascia on the sole of the foot becomes painful.
This structure extends from underneath your heel to the base of the toes. It is an important structure as it allows our feet to be a stable platform to push off when we walk.
The plantar fascia can be considered as part of the tendon family and as such treatment is very similar.
