Tendon Treatment

Normal Tendon

A normal tendon is a very organised structure. It is constantly changing in response to load. Small tears and disorganised fibres are normal and occur all the time, without you noticing as the tendon goes about repairing itself.

Damaged Tendon

Overuse of a tendon can cause an accumulation of tearing, creating pain. Tendons can also be actively overloaded which causes tearing.

Tendon Repair

Tendon repair can be difficult. We offer the following specialist treatments to promote healing:

  • Expert Diagnosis
  • Strengthening and Rehabilitation Programs
  • Blood Injections and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP):
    Blood is taken and then re-injected into the painful area
  • Shock Wave Therapy:
    This is a popular but unusual sounding treatment. A small jackhammer–like device is used to stimulate tendon repair
