The National Tendinopathy Centre (NTC) is a multi-centre collaboration involving a number of partners from primary and secondary care to elite sport and industry.
Tendinopathy is common, debilitating and often recurrent, causing significant functional, health and economic problems. Currently there is little understanding of the causes behind or development of tendinopathy.
The NTC helps patients with tendinopathy by applying current best clinical practice, while at the same time researching and advancing scientific understanding of tendinopathy, including underlying causes and mechanisms. This is designed to help refine and develop new management strategies for sufferers and to implement preventative strategies for those participating in activities that are known to present a higher risk of tendinopathy.
