Course Description/Objectives:

Course Description:

This course builds on the professions’ long-standing discussion asking whether intervention approaches for tendinopathies can be, or should be, similar or different across the upper and lower extremities. Consequently, the entire issue of the Journal of Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy (November 2015) was devoted to tendinopathies. In this course we will build on this recent literature and our prior and current laboratory and clinical experiences and propose additional strategies for management of tendinopathies. We will continue our debate framed around Recurrence of Symptoms and probe into our earlier statements that “The cessation of painful symptoms does not necessarily reflect resolution of the disease processes, and the symptoms may return.” Understanding the time course of the disease, the underlying pathology and related sign and symptoms, provides a foundation for better clinical reasoning and practice”. We will incorporate laboratory data; tie them in with technology assisted clinical assessment strategies, manual therapy and physical capacity assessments and well-founded therapeutic interventions.
