A tendon is a thick cord that attaches muscle to bone. Tendinopathy is an injury to the tendon. There are different types of tendinopathy. Tendinitis − Has irritation and small tears to the tendon. Some swelling and inflammation may be present. Tendinosis − Is a problem when the tendons break down and likely tear over time. The structure of the tendon, in fact, changes. There is no swelling or inflammation present. Tenosynovitis − The thin cover around a tendon, called the tendon sheath, becomes swollen. Calcific tendinopathy − Calcium deposits form in the tendon. This is most common in the shoulder or rotator cuff tendons. This condition may happen in any tendon. It often happens in the shoulder, elbow, or wrist. Some people have problems in their knee or the back of the heel.
