Heavy-Load Eccentric Calf Muscle Training For the Treatment of Chronic Achilles Tendinosis
TLDR
The treatment model with heavy-load eccentric calf muscle training has a very good short-term effect on athletes in their early forties. Expand
Balance board training: prevention of traumatic injuries of the lower extremities in female soccer players?
TLDR
The results showed no significant differences between the groups with respect to the number, incidence, or type of traumatic injuries of the lower extremities, which means that the intervention group could not prevent severe knee injuries in female soccer players with balance board training. Expand
Superior short-term results with eccentric calf muscle training compared to concentric training in a randomized prospective multicenter study on patients with chronic Achilles tendinosis
TLDR
The good clinical results previously demonstrated in the pilot study with eccentric calf muscle training on patients with chronic Achilles tendinosis were reproduced in this multicenter study, showing superior results to treatment with concentric training. Expand
Neovascularisation in Achilles tendons with painful tendinosis but not in normal tendons: an ultrasonographic investigation
TLDR
In all tendons with a painful nodule, but not in any of the normal pain-free tendons, neovascularisation was seen in the area with tendon changes (localised widening of the tendon with focal hypo-echoic areas). Expand
Risk factors for leg injuries in female soccer players: a prospective investigation during one out-door season
TLDR
Multivariate logistic regression showed hyperextension of the knee joint, a low postural sway, reduced H/Q ratio during concentric action, and a higher exposure to soccer to significantly increase the risk of traumatic leg injury. Expand
Chronic Achilles tendon pain treated with eccentric calf-muscle training
TLDR
The conclusion is that treatment with eccentric calf-muscle training produced good clinical results in patients with chronic painful mid-portion Achilles tendinosis, but not in Patients with chronic insertional Achilles tendon pain. Expand
Is vasculo-neural ingrowth the cause of pain in chronic Achilles tendinosis?
TLDR
Findings which support neovessels and accompanying nerves being the possible source of pain in chronic mid-portion Achilles tendinosis are demonstrated. Expand
Injuries in adolescent female players in European football: a prospective study over one outdoor soccer season
TLDR
In this prospective study, injuries in 153 adolescent female soccer players were recorded during one outdoor season (April–October) and most of the major injuries were traumatic such as knee ligament injuries and ankle sprains. Expand
In situ microdialysis in tendon tissue: high levels of glutamate, but not prostaglandin E2 in chronic Achilles tendon pain
TLDR
In situ microdialysis appears a useful method to study certain metabolic events in tendon tissue and the higher concentrations of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate in Achilles tendons with a painful nodule may possibly be involved in the pain mechanism in this chronic condition. Expand
A treatment algorithm for managing Achilles tendinopathy: new treatment options
TLDR
Directing a patient through the algorithm presented here will maximise positive treatment outcomes in the treatment of Achilles tendinopathy. Expand
