Abstract

This is a preprint for a protocol. The purpose of the study described by the protocol was to compare the effectiveness of different treatment classes across a range of tendinopathies and outcomes, to better establish a treatment hierarchy. Where sufficient data were obtained, the potential for covariates - including patient demographics and condition specifics (e.g. symptom severity) - to explain statistical heterogeneity was explored.
