Lumbar discectomies for radicular symptoms are quite prevalent in the United States. Despite this, one out of every four individuals undergoing these procedures continues to have persistent pain and disability (1,2). A recent article published in Spine may change the way we approach pre-operative education and may improve post-op costs.
A recent article in The Lancet set out to investigate if a comprehensive exercise program is more effective than advice, for the treatment of individuals diagnosed with chronic WAD (3).
This article offers a ‘how to’ guide for diagnosing Achilles tendinopathy. We describe the differential diagnoses and look carefully at the history taking, examination methods and imaging techniques that are useful in diagnosing Achilles tendinopathy. The article is accompanied by a custom produced animation explaining the tendinopathy continuum, 7 professionally produced videos covering Achilles tendinopathy examination in standing and in lying, low dye taping, making temporary orthotics, eccentric loading and some case scenarios and a multiple choice quiz which results in the generation of a Pass certificate in the Quizzes area of your account on successful completion.
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.
