What are Gluteal, Achilles and Patella Tendinopathies or plantar Fasciopathy?
Gluteal tendinopathy is pain arising from the outside of your upper leg over your greater trochanter (hip bone). Irritation of the gluteal tendon is known to be the main cause of discomfort. It is also known as greater trochanteric pain syndrome, lateral hip pain or trochanteric bursitis.
Patella Tendinopathy is a common soft tissue injury occurring at the front of the knee, common in sports involving jumping and running hence it may be termed ‘jumpers knee’.
