STUDY DESIGN Case-series study with pre- vs. post-test measurements design. BACKGROUND Strength training programs emphasizing eccentric muscle actions have received much attention in the treatment of tendinopathies. The current study reports on the efficacy of a novel strength training paradigm using inertial eccentric-concentric resistance to treat chronic patellar tendinopathy. CASE DESCRIPTION Ten athletes with chronic patellar tendinopathy (15 tendons) volunteered for the study… CONTINUE READING
