Better understanding painful tendons in mid-life and their management

Odoo CMS- Sample image floating

Clinical outcomes for individuals with mid-life tendinopathies, such as tennis elbow and gluteal tendinopathy can be difficult to predict.
These conditions can be severe, notoriously persistent, at times recalcitrant to treatment.

Recent evidence helps us to better understand the pain in these tendinopathies, especially in those who have more severe pain and disability. This evidence provides some direction as to how the conditions ought to be managed. Our research unit has contributed to this evidence and has undertaken several clinical trials on physical therapies and commonly used injections.

This presentation will cover the outcomes of these clinical trials and provide clinically practical tips on implementation of the findings.

Presenter: Bill Vicenzino, PhD MSc GradDipSportsPhty BPhty, 
Chair in Sports Physiotherapy, 
School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences: Physiotherapy
, University of Queensland.

Bill is a clinician scientist and professor at the University of Queensland, Australia. He is the Director of the Master of Physiotherapy programs in Musculoskeletal & Sports Physiotherapy and of the Sports Injury Rehabilitation and Prevention for Health research unit. Bill's focus is on musculoskeletal health, pain and injury. He has received over $25 million in research funds (from NHMRC, ARC and industry) and conducts clinical trials on treatments such as exercise, manual therapy, injections, advice/education, and orthoses/taping. One trial on physiotherapy versus steroid injections for tennis elbow was rated as a top 15 /29,000 (PEDro-indexed) ‘…ground breaking trials that changed the way people are treated…’ and ‘…mark important milestones in the evolution of physiotherapy treatment…’ He has communicated his research in over 200 peer-reviewed journal publications, 2 books, 35 chapters, and in over 300 podium/workshop presentations.
