Tendinopathy, or tendon injuries, often occur after activities and periods of overuse. It can lead to severely restricted joint mobility, pain, and inflammation.

Causes of tendinopathy

Tendons are fibrous bands of connective tissue that connect muscles to bones. Although they consist of strong collagen, fiber connective tissue can easily be overstretched or even torn by overstraining.

This often affects the patellar and Achilles tendons after sports that involve intensive jumping or running and the insertions of the forearm muscles in those who use computers for long hours at work.

Pain typically sets in after overuse, usually after playing sports etc. Over time, those affected can start to feel pain during simple everyday activities. In some cases, specific exercises are recommended in order to strengthen the tendon and prevent future strains.
