The most common tendon injuries we Advanced Physio specialises in;

- Rotator cuff tears and tendinopathy
More research has been performed on tendon pathology over the last 5 years than in any other time in history and it is a rapidly evolving field . Exercise therapy is now consider to be a standard part of management for many tendon conditions. Old style treatments such as ultrasound and electric currents have been replaced by scientifically designed programs emphasising in particular the use of eccentric loading. This has been proven to be a successful treatment for mid-portion achilles tendon problems , patellar tendon problems and tennis elbow.
