MasterClass - Tendinopathy



Teasing out tendons below the knee: covering what you need to know from the heel to the brain, clinical differential diagnosis, pain management and rehabilitation.


Listen to an interview with Dr Rio on Radio National Sunday 6th March.


Dr. Ebonie Rio

A stand out presenter at our 2014 Conference, we are delighted that Dr Ebonie Rio will conduct this MasterClass in Wellington.


After completing her PhD at Monash University, Ebonie has now started postdoctoral studies at the La Trobe Sport and Exercise Medicine Research Centre, where she will test the treatment on other tendons, as well as finding the minimum number of repeats needed to get lasting effects from the exercise.

Ebonie is a member of the Australian Centre for Research into Injury in Sport and its Prevention, and her research was partially funded by the Australia Institute of Sport Clinical Research Fund.


Dr. Sean Docking

Sean Docking recently completed his PhD with Prof Jill Cook at Monash University. His PhD focused on understanding how normal tendons respond to load, how the normal tendon transitions to becoming pathological, and importantly what are the critical features in tendon pathology that may limit clinical improvement. While his focus during the PhD was using ultrasound tissue characterisation, he has an interest in understanding the clinical utility of imaging in tendon pathology.

Along with publishing more than 10 papers on imaging in tendinopathy, he has consulted with national and international sporting teams in the diagnosis, monitoring and prevention of tendinopathy.
