The Fortius Tendinopathy clinic is run by our Foot and Ankle Consultants in partnership with Jarrod Antflick, Consultant Physiotherapy to British Athletics.
The one-stop clinic provides services previously only available to elite athletes, using specialised ultrahigh resolution scans.
The service is being run in partnership with Tendon Performance.
The clinic provides:
- A consultation with one of the clinic’s Specialist Foot and Ankle surgeons.
- A specialised ultra-high resolution Ultrasound Tissue Characterisation (UTC) 3D scan.
- Specialist review from Tendon Performance and recommendations for dedicated exercise programme.
- Referral for further intervention with a Consultant Radiologist if injection therapy is required.
The scan is able to diagnose any current pathology accurately and also detects early signs of degeneration in the achilles tendon. It can provide reproducible comparative graphs, giving far greater diagnostic capabilities than regular Ultrasound imaging.
This scan enables targeted treatment in the form of load management, guided injection or in the few severe cases a minimally invasive procedure, rather than more radical surgery. The effects of the treatment can be evaluated and monitored over time and UTC Imaging can be also used for the detection of exercise effects and early changes within the tendon matrix for injury prevention.
