Does your Achilles tendon hurt?

Achilles tendinopathy is characterized by localized tendon pain, morning stiffness, and functional disability during activities such as jumping and running. It is a common injury among runners, constituting between 9 and 15% of the so-called "running injuries".

The University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in collaboration with the marathon of San Sebastián is carrying out a study to investigate the forces transmitted to the tendon for a more optimal rehabilitation of the injury.

Evaluation, ultrasound and individualized treatment* free!!!

To be eligible in the study we need:

·       Men between the ages of 20 and 60

·       Running at least once a week

·       Having Achilles tendon pain/rigidity for 6 weeks or more

We also need healthy participants, so bring a partner you train with on a regular basis, and both of you will benefit. 

* 2 sessions to be held in Donostia, including an initial assessment, musculoskeletal ultrasound, exercise plan adapted to the injured runner and monthly follow-up
