Muscle and tendon injuries

Muscle and tendon injuries can result from accidents, improper stress in everyday life or during sports. In order to be able to assess the injury more precisely, we use ultrasound or MRI diagnostics, depending on the clinical findings.

Numerous muscle and tendon injuries can usually be treated conservatively. The first step is to relieve the affected region and to carry out pain management therapy. This is followed by physiotherapy and physical therapy. For faster regeneration, there is also the option of supporting and accelerating healing with PRP (platelet rich plasma)

Chronic tendon overload diseases pose a particular challenge, such as:

  • Tennis elbow and golfer's elbow (epicondylitis)
  • Patellar tip syndrome (jumper’s knee)
  • Achilles tendon complaints (Achilles tendinopathy)
  • Calcareous shoulder (tendinitis calcarea)
  • Plantar fasciitis with heel spurs

In addition to multi-modal therapy, which can consist of physiotherapy / physical therapy, medication, bandages, insoles and load adjustment; regenerative stimulating therapies such as ESWT (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy) and PRP (platelet rich plasma) can also be used. In individual cases it can also be treated with X-ray stimulation or surgery.

In addition, the root cause analysis is of course very important in order to establish an individual prevention programme.
