Tendons are the structure that links a muscle to a bone. They are a rope like structure. The most easily identified tendon is the achilles tendon on the back of the ankle. This is the most common tendon that we see having problems. A lot of tendon problems are due to overuse or poor biomechanics. Occasionally tendons can be injured through direct trauma/injury.
The treatment of a tendon problem is quite specific and requires careful graduated treatment to allow full recovery.
