dc.description.abstract Fluoroquinolone antibiotics are frequently used in the management of infection despite being associated with several side effects including the potential to cause tendon injury. While numerous case reports of Achilles tendon injury related to fluoroquinolone exposure exist in the literature, there is a paucity of research evaluating the effectiveness of treatment interventions for the condition. The author presents a case of chronic bilateral Achilles tendinopathy associated with two separate exposures to ciprofloxacin and its subsequent management with eccentric loading exercises and extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). en_US
