Aplicación de metodologías isoinerciales para la recuperación de SLAP en el balonmano: Estudio de caso.

Las lesiones han sido definidas como cualquier molestia física sufrida, que requiera atención médica y resulte pérdida o limitación parcial o total de futuros entrenamientos o partidos. Una vez producida una lesión en un deportista, este no podrá realizar los entrenamientos y partidos planificados con anterioridad ya que la lesión no se lo permitirá. El […]

The role of eccentric exercise in sport injuries rehabilitation

Introduction: Sports injuries frequently involve tendons, muscles and ligaments. The variable outcome of surgery and medical treatment support early functional treatments. Eccentric exercise (EE) showed effectiveness in the management of Achilles tendinopathy (AT), patellar tendinopathy (PT) and lateral epicondyle tendinopathy (LET). Preliminary results of EE in other tendinopathies and sports injuries suggest its wide prescription […]

Preventive Effects of Eccentric Training on Acute Hamstring Muscle Injury in Professional Baseball

Background:Hamstring injuries are the second most common injury causing missed days in professional baseball field players.Recent studies have shown the preventive benefit of eccentric conditioning on the hamstring muscle group in injury prevention.Specifically, Nordic-type exercises have been shown to decrease the incidence of acute hamstring injuries in professional athletes. Purpose:This was a prospective study performed […]

Rehabilitation of Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy Utilizing Eccentric Training, Lumbopelvic Stabilization, and Trigger Point Dry Needling: 2 Case Reports

STUDY DESIGN: Case report. BACKGROUND: Proximal hamstring tendinopathy is a relatively uncommon overuse injury seen in runners. In contrast to the significant amount of literature guiding the evaluation and treatment of hamstring strains, there is little literature about the physical therapy management of proximal ham-string tendinopathy, other than the general recom-mendations to increase strength and […]

Efectos de un entrenamiento con sobrecarga excéntrica sobre la fuerza, la capacidad funcional y la masa muscular en personas mayores de 65 años

Objetivo: se estudió el efecto de un entrenamiento con sobrecarga excéntrica mediante resistencia inercial, sobre la fuerza, la capacidad funcional y la masa muscular en hombres y mujeres mayores de 65 años. Métodos: se realizaron dos estudios. El primero para establecer la carga de trabajo y consistió en analizar el efecto de tres cargas inerciales […]

Flywheel resistance training calls for greater eccentric muscle activation than weight training

Abstract Changes in muscle activation and performance were studied in healthy men in response to 5 weeks of resistance training with or without “eccentric overload”. Subjects, assigned to either weight stack (grp WS; n = 8) or iso-inertial “eccentric overload” Xywheel (grp FW; n = 9) knee extensor resistance training, completed 12 sessions of four […]

Cambios en la arquitectura muscular y en la velocidad de ejecución de sentadillas en VersaPulley en condiciones estables e inestables en jugadores junior de baloncesto de élite durante una temporada

Resumen: Los objetivos del presente estudio fueron: a) monitorizar y comparar la velocidad de ejecución de sentadillas con VersaPulley (VP) en condiciones estables (CE) y condiciones inestables (CI) en jugadores junior de baloncesto de élite durante una temporada y b) evaluar los cambios en la arquitectura muscular (AM). Siete jugadores junior de baloncesto realizaron el […]

Eccentric exercise in rehabilitation: safety, feasibility, and application

This non-exhaustive mini-review reports on the application of eccentric exercise in various rehabilitation populations. The two defining properties of eccentric muscle contractions —a potential for high muscle-force production at an energy cost that is uniquely low— are revisited and formatted as exercise countermeasures to muscle atrophy, weakness, and deficits in physical function. Following a dual-phase […]

Chronic stroke patients show early and robust improvements in muscle and functional performance in response to eccentric-overload flywheel resistance training: a pilot studyChronic stroke patients show early and robust improvements in muscle and functional performance in response to eccentric-overload flywheel resistance training: a pilot study

Background: Resistance exercise comprising eccentric (ECC) muscle actions enhances muscle strength and function to aid stroke patients in conducting daily tasks. The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of a novel ECC-overload flywheel resistance exercise paradigm to induce muscle and functional performance adaptations in chronic stroke patients. Methods: Twelve patients (~8 years […]
