How do you fix ticked off tendons? w/Squat University’s Dr. Aaron Horshchig

Seems like a lot of lifters we know are always complaining about “tendonitis,” so we asked physical therapist (and founder of Squat University) Dr. Aaron Horschig the help us straighten out our understanding of what they’re really talking about – and potentially how to fix it.

As a physical therapist, he works with Olympic weightlifters, powerlifters, Cross Fitters, international level soccer players, MLB and NFL athletes. He’s currently working with our friend, powerlifter J. P. Price.

Here’s what we came up with:

  • When people talk about “inflammation” in their tendons, is that what it actually is?
  • Is tendonitis even the right term?
  • If there is pain, where is it actually coming from?
  • What works to heal/repair tendons that cause pain, but are not torn through? IFG-1?

Our ideas start about 9:22.

Aaron starts dropping knowledge starting at around 19:20.
