Chat with Ruth Chimenti: 'the best exercise is the one your patient will do'

I recently had a chat with Dr. Ruth Chimenti talking about Achilles tendinopathy. We touched on some interesting topics, including

  • Kinesiophobia and whether it changes with treatment
  • Pain education for tendinopathy - what should it involve? does it work?
  • Patient centred rehabilitation

Here is the link to some brand new trial data from Ruth's lab - she tested efficacy of pain education which is novel for Achilles tendinopathy.

And here is a link to the protocol paper.
