Algunos estudios defienden la liberacion del paratenon como tratamiento idoneo para aliviar el dolor de las tendinopatias aquileas, ya que en ellas es tipica la proliferacion nerviosa del paratenon hacia el tendon de Aquiles y por tanto se produce una liberacion masiva de sustancias nociceptivas.
19,39) The paratenon is a connective tissue sheath that surrounds the entire tendon and is able to stretch 2 to 3 cm with movement, which allows for maximal gliding action.
