If you have wondered about the connection between pain and pathology in tendons, this podcast is for you.
In this new forum, a BJSM reader takes the hard questions to the experts, Chris Littlewood, who has expertise as a clinician and researcher in the rotator cuff, asks questions of Craig Purdam, who needs little introduction to you, and Ebonie Rio, who has expertise as a clinician in tendons and as a researcher in tendon pain.
Listen to the answers on the complex nature of tendons and the relationship between pain and pathology, and let us know via [email protected] if you have a pressing desire to ask an expert yourself about a clinical issue in a podcast. We are always open to suggestions.
