Tendons are tissues that attach muscles to bones and allow the contractions of your muscles to move your joints. They are present in the upper and lower limbs, and treatment can vary depending on the site and how they affect the individual person. The condition can sometimes be associated with swelling, and pain with movement after rest, or following repetitive movement.
Tendon problems can also be described as Tendonitis, Tendinosis, Tendinopathy, but regardless of the term, your local musculoskeletal team can help you navigate your way to recovery.
All muscles in the body have tendons that attach them to bones and each muscle will span a joint. When a muscle contracts the force is then transferred through the tendons to the bones on each side of a joint and the joint moves.
