On the podcast today we speak with Dr. Brett Ferstl, PT at Kinetic Sports Medicine and performance on how to treat tendon pain. 

Tendon pain has been called many things over the years, tendonitis, tendonosis and more recently tendinopathy.  For all athletes, from the competitive team sport athlete, to the recreational runner to the weekend warriors, tendon pain is very common and can be a nuisance that affects your performance for an extended period of time. 

We discuss:

  • Common areas of tendon pain
  • What tendon pain feels like
  • When you should seek professional guidance on your tendon pain
  • Myths around treating tendon pain
  • How to effectively treat tendon pain
  • Why you need a maintenance program after you return to your sport or activities
