Achilles Tendinopathy Rehab

Today's post contains some common exercises which we prescribe throughout someone’s recovery from achilles tendinopathy.⁣ ⁣

There are 3 main aims of tendinopathy rehab:⁣ ⁣ 1) Regenerate damaged tissue of the achilles by progressively loading the tissue.⁣ Isometric and eccentric loading to the tendon has been found to have pain relieving effects on tendons, while simultaneously maintaining baseline strength as well as applying an optimal load to induce an effective adaptation of the tendon matrix.⁣ ⁣ 2) Continue to load the tendon using isometric/eccentric techniques whilst incorporating functional movements. The aim in this phase is to continue to improve strength, force production and neuromuscular activation of the calf, in order to build a better underlying base of support for the achilles, prior to returning to the demands of sport.⁣ ⁣ 3) Improve tendon elastic recoil, to improve energy absorption and force production of the achilles. This is especially important for returning to sports which require a lot of high impact loading.⁣ ⁣ The exercises in this video are all weight bearing, which is a great functional way to recover from achilles tendinopathy and should allow you to return to your sport sooner!⁣ ⁣ These exercises are to be performed pain-free, if you do have pain with these exercises or suffer from an achilles issue then please seek the appropriate medical help before trying.⁣
