A tendon is a tough band of fibrous connective tissue that connects muscle to bone throughout the entire body. Tendonitis refers to inflammation of the tendon due to acute or chronic injury. Recent evidence has shown tendons have a limited capability to produce inflammatory cells at the site of the tendon pain thus the term tendonosis or tendonopathy has become more common and refer to a degenerative process that occurs within the tendon. Some common forms of tendonopathy include forearm extensor tendons (Tennis Elbow), forearm flexor tendons (Golfers Elbow), Achilles tendon problems, Patellar Tendon (Jumpers Knee) and in the surpaspinatus muscle of the shoulder. Treatment of these conditions respond well to Active Release Techniques, Functional Range Release Techniques, Graston, Acupuncture, Chiropractic mobilization/manipulation and a Rehabilitation program targeted at the appropriate tissues.
