/ How painful are eccentric loading exercises?
I injured my biceps femoris tendon about a month ago. I am getting physio for another injury and spoke to him about my biceps femoris. He suggested trying ELE which I am doing but they are really quite painful during (about a 6 on my internal scale), the tendon stays pretty sore and the muscle stiff afterwards.
Should I be expecting this much pain do you think?
Any thoughts much appreciated.
The ones I have done were not painful. I suppose it's like everything: pain is your body's way of telling you to stop, so it can't be good.
I am having doubts about just how painful I should allow.
It is tricky just speaking to the physio as it is NHS the last time I tried they insisted on booking an appt, which I didn't really need. Perhaps I will insist on a telephone chat.
Christ. I should be completely static most of the time then :-)

Maybe. Or you might have to adjust your definitions of pain and discomfort ;-)
You mean "you great big girly wuss", don't you?
Yeah. You could be right. ;-)
