Tendon pain is an often unrecognised injury diagnosis for patients, and therefore we specialise in the accurate recognition and treatment protocols for this domain. Tendons are thick, tough connective tissues that connect muscle to bone. Injured tendons can produce severe pain on movement. These injuries are often misdiagnosed and poorly treated. Common tendon pain can come from tendon tears, tenosynovitis (inflammation of the protective sheath surrounding the tendon), or tendinopathy. Tendon pain can be debilitating and commonly affects areas such as the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, buttocks, and back of the heels.
- Pain with movement, especially before activity
To treat you, we can give you sound advice and dispel some of the myths around these injuries. We can reduce your pain, and help your tendon repair and heal. We can see you at our office on Harley Street, London, or at BUPA Harpenden, Hertfordshire, One Hatfield Hospital, Hertfordshire’s newest private hospital, or at your home for home visits. I can oversee a prescribed plan of exercise rehabilitation for you, plus technical exercise coaching to help improve your exercise techniques and thus avoid future flare-ups. As a team we can offer a full service of assessment and diagnosis, shock wave therapy, or corticosteroid injections.
