Tendons can become painful even without an acute injury. The pain can build over time and may be a result of the tendon responding poorly to load. This may be as a result of too much load like a lot of running, or too little in some individuals. Tendons can also be acutely injury by activities such as sprinting.
What happens to the ligament / tendon when it is injured?
Ligaments / Tendons are not classified like other soft tissue injuries because they do not seem to follow a normal healing pattern. Instead they can develop an altered structure which makes then less able to cope with the load that is being applied e.g. from a sport.
How can we help?
Ligaments / Tendons are not easy to treat and in the wrong hands, it can mean spending a lot of time out of sport without actually progressing. It is really important to get an accurate diagnosis as the treatment can be very different depending on what has happened to the tendon.
Our team of clinicians can ensure that you have an accurate diagnosis, which will be made by a combination of your history and an examination. You may also need an xray scan or MRI, which can be performed on site. You will be then given an appropriate treatment programme and monitored throughout to ensure you are responding appropriately.
