Eccentric Training and Cryotherapy Vs Eccentric Training and Whole Body Vibration in Achilles Tendinopathy (NCT03029910)

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of eccentric exercise combined with vibration or cryotherapy in Achilles tendon pathology. The investigators hypothesis is that the combined eccentric exercise is better than the results presented by the exclusive eccentric exercise. This intervention differs from the classic studies in that we maintain the intensity throughout the treatment.
  • Other: Cryotherapy and eccentric exercise
    12 weeks, 5 days/week, once a day, 2 exercises, 3 sets/exercise, 15 repetition/set. Of excentric exercise of foot plantar flexors. First exercise with knee in extension. Second exercise with knee in flexion. Previously subjects should cool their leg in ice water during sixteen minutes at a temperature of 8ºC (+/-2ºC)
    • Other: Vibration and eccentric exercise
      12 weeks, 5 days/week, once a day, 2 exercises, 3 sets/exercise, 15 repetition/set. Of excentric exercise of foot plantar flexors. First exercise with knee in extension. Second exercise with knee in flexion. During the exercise subjects will be subjected to vibration. Vibration parameters: Frequency: 35Hz, Amplitude: 4 millimeters, Force: 3,9G
