Tendonitis (also tenonitis or tendinitis) is an inflammation of a tendon. For example, patellar tendonitis (jumper's knee) is an inflammation of the patellar tendon, which connects the tibia to the patella.

The Achilles' Tendon is probably the most powerful tendon of the body. It is a fibrous tissue which connects the lower end of calf muscles to the heel. When the calf muscles are contracted, they pull the heel upwards with the help of Achilles' Tendon working as a pulley and pushing the foot downwards.

There are three types of tendonitis that affect the knee joint; hamstring tendonitis, quadriceps tendonitis and patellar tendonitis. This article shows you how to correctly diagnose each type.

It is estimated that Achilles tendonitis accounts for around 11 per cent of all running injuries. The Achilles tendon is the large tendon at the back of the ankle. It connects the large calf muscles (Gastrocnemius and Soleus) to the heal bone (calcaneus) and provides the power in the push off phase of the gait cycle. The Achilles tendon can become inflamed through overuse as well as a number of contributory factors. The Achilles tendon has a poor blood supply which is why it is slow to heal.

Sports injuries are common but can be more easily avoided with a few practical sports injury prevention tips.

As a dancer goes through any period of growth, some pain and stiffness may be noticeable. Unfortunately as we grow, all the action takes place at the growth plates in our bones, and it does take some time for the muscles, ligaments and nerves to adjust to their new positions. This article explains the reason for growth pains focusing on the area of the knees and offers advice to those dancers who may be experiencing pain in this area.

Patellar tendonitis is a condition that is identified by pain that irritates the tendons that connect the patella (or kneecap) to the tibia (known as the shinbone.) The patellar tendon's main job is to work together with the quadriceps muscle and the quadriceps tendon, to help your knee to bend, and these important tendons generate the power necessary to perform this critical motion.
