Project Description

A systematic review of studies that have used exercise for the treatment of tendinopathy.
Tendinopathy is a common disorder that can affect any tendon in the body causing pain, swelling and disability. Most tendinopathies are managed conservatively (i.e. do not require surgery or other invasive procedures), and the most common form of treatment is exercise.
Exercise can take different forms and research has been published on a variety of exercise types, schedules and methods of delivery. Because tendinopathy can occur in any tendon, can last for a short or long time, and may be affected by a number of other factors, it is important to look at the evidence and make recommendations from both a general (all tendinopathies) and specific point of view (e.g. certain tendinopathies, certain groups of people affected).
