WHY such difference ?

The effects of eccentric exercises on Achilles tendinopathy are not similar in athletic and non-athletic sedentary populations. According to Sayana MK et al Eccentric exercises, though effective in nearly 60% of our patients, may not benefit sedentary patients to the same extent reported in athletes.
In my opinion any body in physical therapy practice confirms the statement. WHY such difference exists?
