PT Inquest Episode 75: How a Tendon is Like a Doughnut

Download  iTunes  RSS

Jill Cook and Karim Kahn gave a very interesting lecture on understanding tendinopathy at APTA’s Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) in February 2016. PT Inquest decided to take a deeper look. Can disorganized tendon tissue change? If it can’t does it matter? When we understand the true nature of tendinopathy, certain treatments become much more plausible and others appear almost silly. Also, Erik provides a poor man’s homemade doughnut recipe. Or is it donut?

Pathological tendons maintain sufficient aligned fibrillar structure on ultrasound tissue characterization (UTC).
