Progressive tendon-loading yields positive outcomes in patients with patellar tendinopathy

Compared with eccentric exercise therapy, progressive tendon-loading exercise resulted in “superior” clinical outcomes after 24 weeks in patients with patellar tendinopathy, according to published results.

In a stratified, investigator-blinded, block-randomized trial, researchers analyzed outcomes of 38 patients who were assigned to progressive tendon-loading exercises (PTLE) for clinically diagnosed and ultrasound-confirmed patellar tendinopathy (PT) and a matched cohort of 38 patients who were assigned to eccentric exercise therapy (EET).
