Tendon pain is an often unrecognised injury diagnosis for patients, and therefore we specialise in the accurate recognition and treatment protocols for this domain. A tendon is thick, tough connective tissue that connects muscle to bone. They can produce severe pain on movement when injured, and often get misdiagnosed. 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.

To treat you, we can give you sound advice and dispel some of the myths around these injuries, 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. We can offer treatments such as shock wave therapy, rehabilitation, or corticosteroid injections. In addition to a full service of assessment, I can oversee a prescribed plan of rehabilitation, plus technical exercise coaching to help improve your exercise techniques and thus avoid future flare-ups.
