What You Need To Know About Tendinitis
Pain, inflammation, or irritation of a tendon, no matter where it is located, is the most basic definition of tendonitis (tendinitis). This can affect any tendon in the body, like those in your shoulders, wrist, and heels.
A tendon is connective tissue, or collagen bundles, that connect a muscle to a structure (typically a bone) and allows that structure to move through a joint.
The tendon, or the fibrous cords that connect your bones and muscles, can be damaged through injury, especially of repetitive nature.
Your age also plays a large role, as your tendons become less.
