CONTEXT Tendon disorders comprise 30% to 50% of all activity-related injuries; chronic degenerative tendon disorders (tendinopathy) occur frequently and are difficult to treat. Tendon regeneration might be improved by injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP), an increasingly used treatment for releasing growth factors into the degenerative tendon. OBJECTIVE(More)

BACKGROUND Achilles tendon disorders, like Achilles tendinopathy, are very common among athletes. In the general population, however, knowledge about the incidence of Achilles tendinopathy is lacking. Design Cross-sectional study. METHODS In a cohort of 57.725 persons registered in primary care, the number of patients visiting the general practitioner(More)
Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) is one of the most common leg injuries in athletes and soldiers. The incidence of MTSS is reported as being between 4% and 35% in military personnel and athletes. The name given to this condition refers to pain on the posteromedial tibial border during exercise, with pain on palpation of the tibia over a length of at(More)
BACKGROUND Power Doppler ultrasonography is widely used to examine neovascularization in midportion Achilles tendinopathy. The reliability of the grading of the degree of neovascularization has not been examined previously. HYPOTHESIS Power Doppler ultrasonography can be performed with a high interobserver reliability to determine the neovascularization(More)
Proximal tibiofibular instability is a symptomatic hypermobility of this joint possibly associated with subluxation. It is a rare condition both in clinical practice and in literature. The treatment of choice for proximal tibiofibular instability remains conservative, using a brace 1 cm underneath the head of the fibula. If no improvement is noted after six(More)
BACKGROUND Heterogeneous taxonomy of groin injuries in athletes adds confusion to this complicated area. AIM The 'Doha agreement meeting on terminology and definitions in groin pain in athletes' was convened to attempt to resolve this problem. Our aim was to agree on a standard terminology, along with accompanying definitions. METHODS A one-day(More)
BACKGROUND Achilles tendinopathy is a common disease among both athletes and in the general population in which the use of platelet-rich plasma has recently been increasing. Good evidence for the use of this autologous product in tendinopathy is limited, and data on longer-term results are lacking. PURPOSE To study the effects of a platelet-rich plasma(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the additional effect of a pneumatic leg brace with standard rehabilitation for the treatment of medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) in recruits. METHODS In a single blinded randomized study, 15 recruits (age 17-22) followed a rehabilitation programme consisting of leg exercises and a graded running programme. Recruits performed daily(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the prevalence of different causes of groin pain in athletes using the recent Doha consensus classification of terminology and definitions of groin pain in athletes.
