This is a recording from the MSKR 2019 conference and one of the celebrity names on the roster was Dr O’Neill. His tendon knowledge is incredible and he delivers a lecture covering what we know, what we don’t know and some of the guesswork around tendons and tendinopathy. The recording also includes the audience Q&A for further learning opportunity.

Author: Dr Seth O'Neil
Seth’s clinical and research interests focus around tendon disorders and persistent pain states such as chronic low back pain.
This led to Seth undertaking and completing a PhD : ‘A Biomechanical Approach to Achilles Tendinopathy management’.
Within this Seth identified prevalence rates of tendinopathy in UK runners and developed a greater understanding of risk factors surrounding Achilles tendinopathy.
His later work has completed a more in-depth analysis of how tendinopathy affects the Plantarflexors. This has focussed on how the strength and endurance is affected and which of the Plantarflexors is most involved.
