Talking Tendons 4: Case study of Patellar Tendinopathy with Caz

Tendon Pain Explained

Another podcast first. I talk to Caz who has agreed to be our first case study. Suffering with patella tendinopathy for 5 months now, we discuss her initial symptoms and how management spun out of control. We talk about the highs and lows of her journey, discussing recent flare-ups amongst the small wins and her battle to run the Melbourne Marathon this year.

In this episode you will learn:

  • Common characteristics and behaviour of patella tendinopathy
  • Real-world presentation of the downward spiral
  • Why sometimes you shouldn't listen to doctors
  • Tests you can perform to determine your tendon capacity
  • Initial steps to control tendon irritability
  • Why you need to be careful implementing speed
  • The raw emotions and frustrations with chronic tendinopathy.
