What is tendinosis of the foot?

Tendinosis of the foot is understood to be the traumatic affectation of the tendon, due to tears or lacerations, usually accompanied by inflammation of the tendon. Tendinosis is a degenerative process of the tendon due to an increase in fibroblasts, vascular hyperplasia and collagen disorganization.


The symptomatology will depend on the severity of the disease:

  • Grade I or mild: Inflammation and pain, with possible feeling of instability.
  • Grade II or moderate: Inflammation and pain, with possible hematoma and functional impotence and instability.

How is tendinosis treated?

The treatment of tendinopathies, as well as the recovery time, will depend on the severity of the condition.

Improve muscle strength and control, as well as nerve control, through a combination of treatment based on manual therapyrehabilitation exercises and technology.

For this purpose, at Clínica Sohail we carry out a global assessment beforehandWe perform a thorough and complete examination of the musculoskeletal and nervous system, and depending on the results, we assess which type of treatment is the most appropriate for the patient. In a cross-cutting manner, the rehabilitation team will perform an intervention through therapeutic exercise.

Depending on the degree of injury, and together with the application of technology such as ultrasound-guided percutaneous intratissue electrolysis (EPI), and Echoguided Percutaneous Percutaneous Neuromodulation, Shock waves, Imoove or Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MBST), we will work with a program of control exercises, global postural reeducation (RPG) and/or strength exercises.

The Hyperbaric Chamber can be a great ally in the recovery, thanks to the oxygenation that occurs in the tissues that is produced in the tissues, reduces the recovery times of breaks, wounds, muscle injuries and bone fractures.
