Course Description

Tendons and ligaments are crucial structures inside the musculoskeletal system. Many issues in the treatment of tendon and ligament diseases and injuries have yet not been resolved sufficiently. Tendons and ligaments have been shown to be affected by sex hormones, but the effect seems to differ between male and female hormones. Furthermore, the effect seems to depend on age, and as a result, influence the biomechanical properties of the ligaments and tendons differentially. Because tendons and ligament injuries are frequent, often with long-lasting sequels, it is important to improve our understanding concerning the therapeutic potential of hormones on healing.

Great talk on hormones and tendon/lig injury

I would have liked a little more on management of low oestrogen or progesterone, ie:more on the supplements- how, when, how much etc etc
