Understanding Tendinopathy

What are Tendons?

Tendons are tough fibers that connect muscle to bone and are capable of withstanding tension. Tendon injuries usually occur near joints such as the ankle, knee, elbow and shoulder.

 

 

What causes Tendinopathy:

  • Ageing
  • Overuse
  • Tendinopathies in athletes can occur as a result of suddenly increasing the amount of training per week or change in technique
  • Wear and tear of the tendons- this injury can be brought about as a result of extensive repetitive motion.

See our other posts about Tendinopathy, or check back soon,  and if you have any questions please contact your local Move Well Physiotherapist.
