New Book Chapters on Tendinopathy

This month we have a whole bunch of incredibly useful book chapters on Tendinopathy from our academic partner Elsevier.  We’ve been using them in the tendinopathy course that is currently running and now they are available to all Physiopedia Plus (PP+) members to access.

Firstly we have a great overview chapter from the recently published 4th edition of Grieves Modern Manual Therapy (read the review of this book):

  • Screen H, Cook J, Rio Ebonie and Lewis J. Tendon and Tendinopathy. Chapter 10 In: Jull et al. Grieve’s Modern Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. Elsevier, 2015.

After you’ve read this you might want to home in on a specific anatomical area with one of the following chapters:
