For our first episode, we talk all things Achilles Tendinopathy. We go into the anatomy and physiology of the tendon and of tendinopathies, we then cover the history/exam, and, finally, we discuss the various management strategies for this condition. We hope you are able to take something from this talk and apply it to your practice and/or training. Thanks for listening!
