Effectiveness of eccentric exercise in upper limb tendinopathy?

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


Medina-Porqueres and Ortega-Castillo's systematic review of the current literature examining the effectiveness of eccentric exercise in the treatment of shoulder and elbow tendinopathy suggests there is still significant work to be done in this area. They provide support for the argument that eccentric exercise reduces pain in these conditions but it remains unclear as to whether eccentric exercise is any better than other therapies.
In this issue's physical activity section Barreira and colleagues report a study assessing intra-individual variability of objectively measured daily sitting time to determine if this is related to weekly averages of sitting time or to the recommended levels of moderate to vigorous physical activity. Kwak and co-workers look at the relationship between job activity level and employment status and individual physical activity levels. Slykerman's group outlines the results of a study determining the impact of children's actual and perceived movement skill competence and their physical activity levels.
