I've been battling supraspinatus tendinosis for 4.5 months. haven't done upper body at all in this time. it's gotten a lot better but progress is extremely slow. I've heard about the swedish study for achilles tendinosis where they did eccentric loaded calf raises which sped up recovery by a lot.
this video talks about a similar technique for supraspinatus tendinosis (eccentrics at the end of the video)
Does anyone know anything about this? In another one of his videos he says that massage is not effective for supraspinatus tendinosis. For rehab i've been doing mostly heating and massage. Now I'm thinking about doing heat and these eccentric exercises.
I don't really know how heavy to go, though. I did 5 lbs which was way too light. 7.5 seemed a little light as well so I went to 10 lbs. Don't know if this is too much or not. Also I don't know if this should be done everyday and if there are any other exercises I should do.
