Eccentric Training and Cryotherapy Vs Eccentric Training and Whole Body Vibration in Achilles Tendinopathy

2017-01-26 07:28:17 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of eccentric exercise combined with vibration or cryotherapy in Achilles tendon pathology.

The investigators hypothesis is that the combined eccentric exercise is better than the results presented by the exclusive eccentric exercise.

This intervention differs from the classic studies in that we maintain the intensity throughout the treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.

Tendon that connects the muscles in the back of the calf to the HEEL BONE.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
