Heavy slow resistance training for Achilles tendinopathy associated with early patient satisfaction

August 29, 2015

Among patients with Achilles tendinopathy, both eccentric training and heavy slow resistance training had an equally good positive and lasting clinical effect in results of a level 1, randomized controlled trial.

Researchers randomly assigned 58 patients with chronic midportion Achilles tendinopathy to eccentric training or heavy slow resistance training for 12 weeks. At 0 weeks, as well as at 12 and 52 weeks follow-up, researchers assessed the patients’ function and symptoms, tendon pain during activity, tendon swelling, tendon neovascularization and treatment satisfaction.
