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 had a knee injury that was about 2 years old by the time I saw Andrew. A combination of hoping it would get better on it's own and just not taking the time to get something done about (it was more annoying rather than debilitating) resulted in me putting off addressing it.

I was impressed with Andrew's assessment skills and his ability to explain the different compensations I had developed as a result of my injured knee. The exercises were challenging but doable and I really appreciated the videos he supplied so that I could check my form. He... read more

Andrew is an extremely valuable asset to our community thanks to his passion for not only his patients, but for staying on top of current research and techniques. I have seen him numerous times and the care I have received is second to none. Andrew is also actively involved in our local athletic community offering injury prevention advice and training tips, and you can often see him volunteering his time at athletic events. Highly recommend.

Andrew is by far the most effective Physical Therapist specializing in helping in athletes increase performance, endurance, and techniques to reduce injury. The sessions he offers are tailored to the athlete and utilize scientifically based research. I appreciate all he has done to provide me guidance and direction in addressing several recurring issues!
