Tendinopathy, Tendinitis

Formerly known as ‘tendinitis’. Tendinopathy is the overuse-related wear and tear of a tendon. It is probably the most common affliction of any serious athlete. It most commonly affects the patella tendon (knee), achilles (ankle) and hamstrings. Eccentric loading remains the most effective method to stimulate regeneration of a damaged tendon. This mechanism is referred to as ‘mechanotransduction’.
