Achilles Tendinopathy

From: – The Journal of the Australian Association of Massage Therapists. (Feb 2005) http://www.aamt.com.au/journals/Feb2005/Achilles%20Tendinopath1.pdf

This is a fantastic article for anyone who is involved in the treatment of any achilles tendon injury. Author James Barker discusses the anatomy and pathology of the tendon as well as the signs/symptoms and aetiology of the injured structure. He also delves into the most suitable types of treatment that all therapists SHOULD be able to provide for the benefit of the client. This is a brilliant article.

Injury, tissue damage, healing and return to function.

This is an excellent article that discusses the three main phases of injury – Inflammation, Repair and Remodelling. The healing process of damaged tissue, and how different types of massage – specifically “Deep Transverse Friction” can assist in a quicker return to normal function are also discussed in depth.
