Abstract [en]

Chronic Achilles tendinopathy is difficult to treat, and results, even after surgical management, are variable. The few studies that reported long-term results indicated a poor outcome. Also, surgery requires prolonged rehabilitation, and, depending on the patient's occupation, a varying period of sick leave from work. This article gives an update on recently developed conservative treatment methods for the management of chronic Achilles tendinopathy.
