Tendinopathy, also known as tendonitis refers to the breakdown of collagen in a tendon. This is caused when overuse of a tendon causes wear and inflammation, however it can also be caused if sudden stress is placed on the tendon. Many sports men and women can develop tendinopathy as well as people leading a very active lifestyle. Whilst it is an acute injury, it can be treated if you seek medical treatment with the likes of a good physiotherapy relatively quickly.
Here at Chantal Lowry Physiotherapy, our therapists can help you to build strength as well as stimulate tendon healing through a bespoke home treatment plan.

"My son and I have both attended Chantal with back issues (following a recommendation from a mutual friend). She quickly diagnosed issues with my son's feet as the cause of his problems. We had our GP refer him to a podiatrist and the insoles which Chantal recommended have been sorted giving him a great deal of relief from his back pain.
For myself she has been wonderful sorting out what was chronic back pain which was preventing me from sleeping and causing me to take constant pain medication. I still attend for remedial physio and have to say that I have the best night's sleep ever after a session and the acupuncture she uses on me."
