Abstract
The article presents a case study of an 18-year-old female college track athlete who was suffering from extensor hallucis longue tendinosis. She suffered an injury during a jump and the pain kept getting worse due to non-treatment. She was given a total of three weeks of therapy including eccentric exercise, deep transverse friction massage and pulsed ultrasound. It highlights eccentric exercise as an effective treatment of tendinosis.
