Benefits of eccentric training program in females with chronic neck-shoulder pain

Takeaway

  • Preliminary results suggest eccentric training can improve pain sensitivity, stiffness, shoulder force and range of motion in females with chronic neck-shoulder pain (NSP).

Why this matters

    Eccentric training, where muscles producing force are lengthened, has been extensively studied in the treatment of tendinopathies; however, much less is known about its effectiveness in chronic NSP.
