Tendonitis and Tendinopathy

Musculoskeletal pain from tendinopathy can be very debilitating and lead to significant changes in lifestyle that can ultimately affect health.

Research into treatments for tendinopathy has been going on for many years however there remains no one single cure for this condition.

Most patients require a combination of physiotherapy, change of technique whether that represents recreational or occupational use and some form of pain relief.

A few patients require more invasive procedures such as image guided pain relieving injections and a smaller group require therapeutic injections such as platelet rich plasma.

A small group resistant to these treatment may require surgery.
