Tendinopathy course objectives
This theoretical and practical course will present the current understanding of tendon pathology and physiology at both a basic science and clinical level; present the assessment of, and aetiological factors for, tendinopathy; and the management of simple and difficult clinical presentations of tendinopathy.
Learning Outcomes: After the course, participants will:
Understand and be able to explain the current understanding of the anatomy, pathology and physiology of tendinopathy.
Have the capacity to assess a client presenting with tendon pain
Understand the principles of treatment for tendinopathy and apply them to all tendons
Recognise and treat difficult tendons and refer them as appropriate to other providers.
Course content: This course will examine all aspects of tendon injury from the underlying pathology to the management of these conditions. At the completion of the workshop the participant will understand why tendon injuries are difficult to treat, what to tell the client with a tendon injury and will be well placed to educate other health professionals about tendinopathy.
Although directed more towards tendinopathy of the lower limb, this course will give the clinician the skills to treat all tendon injuries and will include both theory and practical teaching.
Teaching Process: The course will involve power point presentations, practical sessions and open discussion.
