This two-day workshop will focus on how to manage tendinopathy based on latest updated research and clinical experience.
Presented by following speakers
In the workshop, you will learn how to best diagnose, treat and prevent the most common tendinopathies (Tests and exercises will be demonstrated).
You will also get insight on the most important differential diagnoses and risk factors for developing tendinopathy. In addition barriers to successful outcome, such as fear of movement and pain, will be discussed including recommendations for how to address these during the rehabilitation.
The practical strength training part is planned with focus on lower limb and upper limb and attention on proper exercise technique imparting.
Return to sport criteria will be discussed and how to prevent setbacks - to bring the athlete efficient back to sports.
