Tendonopathy is a frustrating niggle to carry

Achilles, patellar, elbow, they all negatively impact many activities, particularly running and sprinting

That’s why its common in runners, rugby players and those who do manual work

 

These issues subtly raise their ugly little head mildly when the tendon gets ‘reactive’

But without the right approach, over a chronic period it gets worse and can then get ‘degenerative’

 

Because there’s been such a black hole in relation to this subject…

Very little quality advice has been given to people like you, in fact…

I would say this is one injury/niggle which is most poorly addressed by many trainers and therapists

 

So here are some facts:

 

  • Tendons hate stretch-shortening
  • Tendons hate inconsistency
  • Tendons hate lack of strength in the muscle they attach too

 

By inconsistent we’re talking change…

A bit like what we get like when we get a bit greyer in the old fringe…

 

This includes sudden changes in the amount you do on feet (e.g. walking/running distance)

Also changes in the firmness of running surfaces

 

By stretch shortening we’re talking movements which cause rapid lengthening and shortening of the muscle they attach to (why you want to avoid fast plyometrics)

 

And by lack of strength, we know tendon loading increases when the muscles they attach to are weaker

 

So what does this tell you?

 

  1. Have a structured training routine during activities which load the tendon
  2. Limit quick plyometric exercises which load the tendon
  3. Use proper strength training to increase strength in the associated muscles

 

These steps are ones we use with members at CP, e.g. Richard and his Achilles who swears by his training focused on this

 

Even if your tendon is so angry and pissed its degenerative, the above steps manage this well
