Achillestendinopathy and pain

Brund et al. shoots a new RUNSAFE-based publication on pain into Scandinavian Journal of Pain

Are pain sensitivity in the Achilles tendon associated with running-induced injury? This question is raised by René Korsgaard Brund and coauthors in a new RUNSAFE-based publication. The study revealed the following result: Pain sensitivity in the Achilles tendinopathy was not associated with Achilles tendinopathy. However, high pain sensitive runners were developing 5 percentage-point (95%CI: -0.18 to 0.08) more Achilles tendinopathy episodes during 1500km of running compared with low pain sensitive runners.
