Presenter Details About Dr Seth O'NeillSeth is a Physiotherapy Lecturer at the University of Leicester whilst also maintaining clinical work. He has a PhD on tendinopathy. Within this Seth has identified prevalence rates of tendinopathy in runners and developed a greater understanding of risk factors surrounding Achilles tendinopathy.His later work has completed a more in-depth analysis of how tendinopathy affects the Plantarflexors. This has focussed on how the strength and endurance is affected and which of the Plantarflexors is most involved. This work has highlighted the involvement of the Soleus muscle in human Achilles tendinopathy. This has led to the further work related to Calf injuries in sports.Whilst Seth’s focus is on the Lower limb he maintains a strong interest in all MSK conditions. He is currently examining tendon structure and changes that occur during health and disease along with Biopsychosocial interventions for tendinopathy and LBP and developing an international database of calf injuries.

In the general population, lower limb tendinopathy will affect up to 12% of the population at any one time, and incidence rates are even higher in active/athletic populations.

Currently there is a mismatch between the evidence base for tendinopathy management and common clinical management.

This course will bridge that gap and improve the clinical competence of the therapists participating, but most importantly improve patient outcomes.
