Talking Tendons 4: Case study of Patellar Tendinopathy with Caz

INTRODUCTION:

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:

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