The Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH) Tendon Clinic is the only one-stop combined tendon clinic in London dedicated to the assessment and treatment of tendon injuries, both upper and lower limb. These injuries include achilles, patellar tendon, hip and buttock tendons and shoulder tendons.
The clinic is a unique service run by Dr Lorenzo Masci, Consultant Sports and Musculoskeletal Physician and Mr Chris Myers, Specialist Physiotherapist. Both clinicians have extensive experience with tendon injuries, more specifically chronic tendons that are not improving. Dr Lorenzo Masci has published 18 peer-reviewed papers on upper and lower limb tendinopathy and has spoken at many international conferences on tendinopathy.
This ‘combined approach’ is normal for elite athletes and is now available to amateur athletes who are struggling to reach their goals.
Every new patient has an hour initial consultation, which includes:
thorough history taking
an ultrasound and UTC scan
relative strength testing
The clinic uses a UTC scan for achilles and patellar tendon injuries to confirm a diagnosis and allow monitoring of changes to the tendon structure that guides rehab.
Following the consultation, an individualised evidence based treatment programme tailored to your needs and goals will be implemented. This may include injection therapy, shockwave therapy and /or a specific rehabilitation programme. On some occasions, this may involve minimally invasive procedure or surgery. Dr Lorenzo Masci has developed a minimally invasive scraping procedure for achilles and patellar tendons under ultrasound-guidance. We also work with the world’s leading surgeons and will ensure you see the right person for your problem.
