Intervention Treating Kinetic Chain Factors versus Heavy-Slow Resistance Training in Athletes with Patellar Tendinopathy: Protocol for a Randomized Blind Clinical Trial

SUMMARY Introduction. Heavy Slow Resistance Training (HSR) is one of the most recommended interventions for the treatment of patellar tendinopathy (PT). However, the HSR protocol does not address known risk factors for PT. Athletes with PT have been shown to have stiff jump-landings, decreased ankle dorsiflexion range of motion and hip extensors strength compared to asymptomatic athletes. This study … Continued
