Effect of a 12-week Eccentric and Isometric Training in Achilles Tendinopathy on the Gastrocnemius Muscle: an Ultrasound Shear Wave Elastography Study

SUMMARY Background. Eccentric exercises (EE) and isometric exercises (ISO) are standard treatment options for Achilles tendinopathy, but still their exact effect remains uncertain. Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) was used to examine the influence of these exercises on the elastic properties of Mm. gastrocnemii medialis and lateralis in a 12-week training program. Methods. Prospective study with … Continued
