In this video we look at tendon injury. We look at what is Tendinopathy and Tendinitis.
What is Tendinopathy and Tendonitis
Tendons are the tough fibers that connect muscle to bone. Most tendon injuries occur near joints, such as the shoulder, elbow, knee, and ankle. A tendon injury may seem to happen suddenly, but usually, it is the result of repetitive tendon overloading. Health professionals may use different terms to describe a tendon injury. You may hear:
Tendinitis (or Tendonitis): This actually means “inflammation of the tendon,” but inflammation is actually normal tendon healing response which can cause some tendon pain. This is known as the reactive phase and is a good tendon healing response.
The problem really occurs when you healing rate is less than your injury rate – known as tendon dysrepair – which is when tendinopathies can quickly deteriorate into the degenerative (cell death) phase. This is characterized by collagen degeneration in the tendon due to repetitive overloading. These tendinopathies therefore do not respond well to anti-inflammatory treatments and are best treated with functional rehabilitation. The best results occur with early diagnosis and intervention.
