This article is an overview of a review by Malliaras et al. (1) looking at Achilles and patellar tendinopathy rehabilitation. There has been much research into the pathophysiology of tendinopathy and management of the condition has changed distinctly in the last 10 years. However, therapists are still using these old protocols (observed as little as 4 weeks ago) despite an incredible 45% of patients not responding significantly to eccentric exercise programmes. This article succinctly outlines the latest evidence base and rehab protocols and includes a video, animation and a continuing education multiple choice quiz.
