Our expert says:
Depending on the severity of the tendonitis, the general time-line for complete rehabilitation of a tendonitis injury is about 6 weeks. You will need to discuss with your physiotherapist when he/she feels you are ready to progress to the final phase of rehabilitation, with a Biokineticist. The Biokineticitst would thus prescribe exercises that can increase the strength of the tendon both concentrically and eccentrically, to help restore the tendon to its normal function.
You should also treat the cause of the tendonitis. Two common reasons for tendonitis are overtraining and biomechanical factors (e.g.: bad running technique). The Biokineticist would be able to assess this and provide adequate treatment/ advice.
