The LycaHealth tendinopathy clinic in Canary Wharf, East London and Orpington, Kent treats tendon injuries including tendonitis (inflammation of the tendon) and tendinosis (microtears in and around tendon).
Tendinopathy is more common in those who do sports and who do other repetitive physical movements or activities.
Some of the most common tendinopathy injuries we treat are:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Patellar tendonitis
- Shin splints
- Iliotibial band (ITB) syndrome
Our physiotherapy-led tendinopathy clinic means you’ll be in expert hands – we have some of the UK’s very best physiotherapists on site at LycaHealth who will assess your injury. With tendinopathy it is often necessary to use MRI, X-ray or Ultrasound to accurately diagnose the injury. Luckily, we have state of the art diagnostic imaging equipment; our 3.0T MRI scanner is twice as powerful as most MRI scanners, which is more likely to spot issues. Once you’ve been diagnosed, you’ll be referred to the appropriate specialist for treatment and a carefully tailored recovery and aftercare plan.
Treatment for tendinopathy can include physiotherapy, joint injections, orthotics and also Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) and effective treatment for pain relief and helps to restore mobility.
