In one of the very popular episodes they talked with the physiotherapist, Seth ONeil concerning Achilles tendon injury. It turned out to be popular as Achilles tendinopathy can be so common however is often improperly treated and you will find a number of areas of it treatment which have been debatable and poorly understood. The purpose of the episode was to address these matters. In this show they outlined whether this is an inflammatory reaction or a degenerative problem or even if it will be both. They discussed how he examines the posterior ankle soreness clinically, which isn't always because of Achilles tendinopathy. Seth in addition offered his ideas on imaging appropriateness and timing and also why isometrics probably are not the silver bullet for pain relief which so many promote it as being.
