Motor imagery training decreases pain on loading in people with moderate Achilles tendinopathy: A preliminary randomised cross-over experiment

SUMMARY Background. Achilles tendinopathy (AT) is characterised by pain with loading e.g. hopping. Disruption in the working body schema may contribute to pain. We tested this idea by ‘training’ the working body schema through motor imagery and testing loading pain. Methods. 6 participants with mid-portion AT entered this preliminary cross–over study. They received two randomised … Continued
