    Uphill running improves rat Achilles tendon tissue mechanical properties, and alters gene expression without inducing pathological changes.

    OK, this was in rats and it does seem to be somewhat counter-intuitive that uphill running will help achilles tendonitis, but assume that the benefit is probably related to the increased eccentric activity.

    From on n=1, my second most recent bout of achilles tendonitis was cured with a Cluffy wedge (I talked about that here ), my most recent bout went away when I added in some steep hill runs (for those in Melbourne, it was the 100 steps in Ferntree Gully)

    Out of curiosity Craig. Did you continue with the CW once symptoms had subsided? If so did you rehab the tendon then cease use of the CW?
     

  5. Hi Craig can you send the full text ?

    Hi all miss me :D

    Anyways he is something I wrote which may or may not be published

    Basically it all comes back to torsion and spring harmonics -

    The greater the torsion the stronger the Gastroc/sol complex and the more efficient in storing and returning energy and taking load

    What is really interesting was the mention of a change in gene markers

    Still wearing the Cluffy Wedge and still running up steep hills...

    Mecanotransduction... tissue adaptation... eccentric / minimalist / uphill... : That's what I recommend to my persistent Achilles tendon pain, and prohibit to my acute tendon pain.

    Interesting. Hope you do get round to completing and publishing.

    Thought you'd fallen off the planet! I miss your tune of the week....

    Cheers,

    (No idea how that dead horse ended up on my last post. Guess I'm still becoming acquainted with my not-so new htc:eek:)
