Author: Dr Seth O'Neil


Seth’s clinical and research interests focus around tendon disorders and persistent pain states such as chronic low back pain.

This led to Seth undertaking and completing a PhD : ‘A Biomechanical Approach to Achilles Tendinopathy management’.

Within this Seth identified prevalence rates of tendinopathy in UK runners and developed a greater understanding of risk factors surrounding Achilles tendinopathy.

His later work has completed a more in-depth analysis of how tendinopathy affects the Plantarflexors. This has focussed on how the strength and endurance is affected and which of the Plantarflexors is most involved.
