Today, we’re going to talk a little bit about tendons and tendon therapy. One thing you don’t want to do for a chronic tendon problem is to rest it. 

In some interesting data by Jill Cook, she talks about a study comparing an abnormal, dysfunctional tendon and a normal tendon. In the dysfunctional tendon, there was some thickening, but it also had more normal tissue than the normal tendon. This means that the person would have plenty of good tissue for low training or resistance type training. 

The typical therapy for tendon repair includes:
• Rest
• Ice 
• Heat 
• Manual therapy 
• Stretching 

The types of therapy treatments for tendon repair above may not get you anywhere. But, with low training, where you put the body under low gradual stress, gradually increasing the load on the tendon, the body can adapt. 

She also talks about how the inflammatory process doesn’t really trigger tendon problems. This could explain why things like rest, ice, and heat don’t help tendon problems.
