We analyze injured tendon function and ultrasound image and administer the best treatment depending on the state of the tendon. We look for the trigger cause and develop a step-by-step treatment programme for a reliable recovery without relapse.
We ask the patient to perform some functional tests to identify possible biomechanical issues and in addition, we record the patient’s running gait on a treadmill or in the street. Following some simple guidelines can improve our running technique, conserving energy and avoiding overload injuries and subsequent pain.
The load-bearing capacity of muscle/tendon tissue is not infinite. There are intrinsic and extrinsic factors that often overload specific parts of our body. This overloading causes pain and prevents us from continuing with an activity, and may ultimately force us to stop the activity. Finding a balance between the strain that exercise presents and the strain that the body can support is the key to safe exercise and preventing injury.
Ultrasound is a tool which represents a quantum leap in diagnosis and follows the exact course of the injury being treated. If you have felt a sharp pain while running or have had calf pain for some time, we can assess exactly what is causing this pain.
We implement a step-by-step recovery from musculoskeletal injuries such as muscle injuries, tendon, fractures … and post- surgical treatments. We help you to get back to your sport without risk of relapse.
Both Electrolysis Percutaneous Intratissue (EPI) and dry needling are popular techniques used for treating sports injuries. Unlike dry needling, EPI lacks rigorous scientific studies on which to base its effectiveness. Our experience, however, tells us that in specific cases the results are positive if combined with active work. While EPI is a technique aimed at the treatment of tendinopathy and apparatus skeletal muscle fibrosis, dry needling is more aimed at the treatment of myo-fascial trigger points.
