In our obsessive pursuit of stronger muscles and hearts, we’ve failed to understand how to train and feed connective tissue like ligaments, tendons, bones, and cartilage.
Almost everyone is told that the tendon doesn’t have much of a blood supply and takes ages to recover from an injury. We do nothing with this information.
If you have tendon pain, the chances are you don’t really understand the concepts of load and capacity. Nature offers a smorgasboard of stresses and pressures to help you screw up your tendons. I think someone once said suffering is good for the soul, and tendons believed them . Tensile, compressive, and shearing loads can get a tendon pain party well and truly on the way!
I see a lot of people in muscular pain and in particular those with tendonitis, tendinopathy or tendinosis (same thing, different words)
The reality is that there are lots of things you can do to ease pain and promote recovery or at the least , stop it getting worse .What I have noticed is that people who take an active role in their recovery , get better sooner.
