Tendinopathies


Repetitive stress along a tendon (Achilles, patellar, medial and lateral elbow, rotator cuff) → collagen degeneration or tendinosis.
Many studies have cast doubt on the role of inflammation (tendonitis).
Overloading of the tendon due to poor biomechanics (e.g., muscle imbalances, foot overpronation) and repetitive stress → collagen breakdown and/or inflammation.
