Project: Effectiveness of eccentric exercises and stretching on functional performance in patients with chronic rotator cuff tendinopathy

project duration
01-JAN-08 – 31-OCT-12
abstract
The purpose is to evaluate the effectiveness of specific rehabilitation exercises (eccentric training and stretching) on functional performance in patients with chronic rotator cuff tendinopathy. In a randomized clinical trial, results of the experimental group are compared with a control group (undergoing the classical physiotherapy intervention) with respect to range of motion, strength, pain, function, tendon stiffness and force-reproduction measurement.
