A tendon is a long elastic collagen material which attaches muscles in the body to the bones.  They are lever points which transfer energy to allow us to move. Tendon overuse injuries can occur anywhere in the body. The most common regions that tendon issues occur are the Achilles tendon, the patella tendon, the rotator cuff tendons and tendons of the elbow.  Historically many names have been used for tendon pain including tendonitis, tendinitis, tendinosis
