The goal of this study was to examine the impact of the diacutaneous fibrolysis technique on the diagnosis of Achilles tendinosis. The purpose of this single subject design series was to investigate whether the addition of the "hooking" technique to traditional physical therapy was effective for reducing pain and improving function in individuals with long-standing Achilles tendon pain.
