There are several different types of tendon issuses all of which may affect the human body on some level and can, therefore, benefit from assessment, diagnosis and/or treatment from a Myotherapist.
Tendinosis describes a chronic tendon injury with degeneration at the cellular level and no inflammation.
Finally, in recent years, tendinopathy has become the most appropriate term again.
Tendinopathy describes a chronic tendon injury.
As a sufferer of tendon issues, they generally flare up when it becomes an overuse injury. Tendon issues are most common in people who do repetitive movements with poor technique and strength which leads to weaknesses.
