A summary of Saturdays chat with Warren Boland on 612ABC radiohttp://blogs.abc.net.au/queensland/2013/11/tendonitis.html?site=brisbane&program=612_weekends_with_warren Key points: The latest body of research indicates that tendons do not get inflammed - the cellular matrix that makes up the tendon breaks down and pain results from nerve and vascular reaction. Tendonopathy is a more accurate description Tendons get sore from inappropriate loading - overuse, misuse, long term overloading. It is becomming more apparent that modification of loading and a graded exercise rehabilitation program is the best way to manage and help restore function. Anti-inflammatory drugs and rest may help in the short term but not long term. If you just rest and wait until it stops hurting, then return to activity there is a very high chance of recurrence Ultrasound scans and MRI should be used as part of the diagnostic and management process. Just because you have a 'bad scan', doesn't mean that function cannot be restored. Again - graded exercise programs are the key regardless of how degenerative or 'damaged' the tendon is. Stretching sore tendons can be counterproductive, especially if the pain is at the junction of the tendon and the bone. Compressing the tendon can contribute to the problem. Strength is important but more so is conditioning. Rehabilitation programs may start slow with isometrics (holding with no movement) but have to progress to doing exercises suited to the patient goals at speed, change of direction and appropriate loads.
