Tendon Injury (Tendinopathy)

 

Limp in Leap out Physiotherapy & Wellness in Belfield provides servicing to many near by Inner West suburbs including Belmore, Strathfield and Croydon park. See below some general information regarding a condition we can treat. 

A Tendinopathy refers to the disorder of a tendon.

A tendon connects muscle to bone. These tendons are designed to withstand load, however, constant repetitive and changes in load can cause a converse response. Our Limp in Leap out Physiotherapy clinic in Belfield is equipped to treat and manage your Tendon Injuries. 

 

Originally thought to be a disorder of inflammation, tendinopathies generally constitute neovascularisation, which is an excess amount of blood vessels compromising the tendon. Later stages of tendinopathies  involve micro tears and severe degeneration. 

 

Techniques performed in our clinic to assist patients with tendinopathies include implementing eccentric protocols, soft tissue therapy and high intensity ultrasound therapy to cause ablation.
