What is Tendinopathy?

Tendons connect muscle to bone and help move joints. Tendinopathy is an injury to the tendon. These injuries tend to occur in tendons near joints such as knee, shoulder, and ankle. The injuries can include:

  • Tendinitis-an inflammation of the tendon. (Although this term is used often, most cases of tendinopathy are not associated with significant inflammation.)
  • Tendinosis-microtears (tiny breaks) in the tendon tissue with no significant inflammation.
Tendinopathy and the associated pain may take months to resolve.
