The purpose of this study is to determine and describe the expected outcomes (degree of pain relief, duration of pain relief, return to sport or desired activity, and secondary treatment interventions sought) for individuals who undergo ultrasound guided Achilles and patellar tendon scraping for tendinopathy.
Achilles tendon rupture is a common injury and surgical treatment poses the risk of infection. An infected Achilles tendon is a difficult entity to treat due to a thin surrounding soft tissue envelope as well as poor tendon vascularity. In this retrospective review of cases examined at Mayo Clinic-Rochester, we seek to elucidate the clinical outcomes of patients who have undergone treatment for an infected Achilles tendon.
The aim of this study will be to estimate and compare intra-rater reliability and minimal detectable change (MDC) of maximum ankle dorsiflexion (ADF) in persons with lower extremity injury using a weight-bearing lunge test (WBLT) and three clinical measurement tools: (1) standard goniometer; (2) bubble inclinometer; and (3) digital goniometer.
