Abstract:

Achilles tendinopathy, or an overuse injury to the Achilles tendon, is a common injury in the population as a whole. Especially among runners it is a major problem with 10% of this group having complaints of his or her Achilles tendon. Complaints are often limiting both in sports activities and in daily life. Recovery often takes a long time and is often frustrating for both the patient and the healthcare provider. This is partly due to the fact that it is unknown which treatment works best, which often means that several treatments are performed consecutively by patients. This dissertation has led to more knowledge about risk factors for the development of Achilles tendinopathy, the role of imaging with a focus on vascular renewal and the treatment options in patients with Achilles tendinopathy.
