Loading leads to multiple changes in tendon morphological and mechanical properties, which can be altered in tendinopathy. Reductions in tendon thickness are generally reported after loading in lower limb tendons, with some studies suggesting a reduced response in painful tendons. However, no such studies exist for the rotator cuff (RC) tendons. Therefore, the aim of this research was to examine the short-term effect of loading on thickness of the supraspinatus tendon (SsT) and acromiohumeral distance (AHD) in people with and without RC tendinopathy.
