Tendonitis

twitter tendonitis tendinopathy discussion
Twitter can be a great way of challenging yourself professionally. Many of the world’s best PTs are active on twitter and involved in ongoing debates about the latest research and various topics. Sometimes I stay on the sidelines, watch and learn, and othertimes I’ll join in. Tom Goom (a running physio from Britain with an awesome blog!), specializes in running rehab and recently wrote a case-study in the blog of the British Journal of Sports Medicine. He presented the story of Al, a runner with achilles tendinopathy. He provided various info, including training data, and asked the twitter community to comment on their thoughts about training error using the hashtag #achillesal. Having read the blog, I saw that we had four weeks of mileage data and I was able to suggest using the acute:chronic workload ratio (see our previous blog) that training load was not likely to be the issue. Other sports medicine professionals continued to make their suggestions. A few days later Tom put the various tweets, including mine, together into a storify post – see below! This also provides some introduction into the new blog I am about to post: Tendinopathy, not Tendonitis! Stay tuned!

Never miss a blog!

I highly recommend PhysioWorks. My condition was not an injury, but rather years of back pain, tension and fatigue, especially associated with pregnancy. I finally decided to try to tackle it, and Andrew was very thorough, knowledgeable, and helpful - giving me useful tips, techniques, and detailed stretches and exercises that quickly helped combat the pain and tension. Very thankful I gave him a try, and I recommend you to do the same!

Andrew is on top of the latest research and therapy practices! As a fitness instructor, being in good physical health is a job requirement. After an injury, Andrew worked to get me back up to speed quick! He takes time to address the physical as well as the mental aspects of recovery. Instead of needing to go for visits 3x per week, I saw him 3x over the course of a couple months and actually saved money. I appreciate the athlete log-in for videos so you can do them at home. Lastly, Andrew is an honest and dedicated professional. Would... read more

Andrew is a fantastic physical therapist, and I highly recommend him to everyone! I originally saw him for an impinged shoulder about 10 years ago in a traditional PT setting, and although I was very pleased with the results, the Physioworks practice model is a tremendous improvement over traditional PT. Andrew is able to provide more individual attention to his patients and work with them over a longer period of time to get better and more permanent results. Andrew has the gift of encouragement and focuses on educating his patients in the "why" of each exercise.
