Tendons are made of connective tissues where it acts as space-saving “connectors” that transfer the movement of the muscle to the bone. One end of the tendon is attached to a muscle. The other end is firmly attached to the membrane covering the bone (the periosteum) or to the bone itself.
What is Tendinopathy? >

Tendinopathy is a condition that occurs when a tendon is overworked or injured. This can happen due to repetitive use, sudden overuse or an acute injury. The common symptoms of tendinopathy include:

 Pain in the affected area

 Swelling in the affected area

 Stiffness in the affected area

 Weakness in the affected area

 Difficulty using the affected area 

Compared to muscles, tendons have fewer blood vessels in them too. Because of this, they are prone to injury when overstrained and take a lot longer to heal than other types of tissue in the body.
Tendinopathy is common in the following areas.jpg
Tendinopathy is common in the following areas >
Tendons respond to injury and micro-trauma by exhibiting an inflammatory response; a condition known as tendinitis. A failed acute inflammation in the early stage of healing results in tendon degeneration known as tendinosis; a vicious cycle of failed healing and re-injury which is characterized by tenocyte death, tendon degeneration, chronic pain, disability and deformity.
Treatment Options >

 Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

 Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Adjuvant Therapy Treatment Options >

 Bromelain :

Promotes the regeneration of injured tendons through stimulating tenocyte proliferation, which are cells that make up tendons.

• Epigallocatechin gallatea :

It is a powerful anti-oxidant that protects the tendons from further damage by free radicals, which can contribute to the development of tendinopathy

 Curcumin :

Has anti-inflammatory properties, which means that it can help to reduce inflammation. Inflammation is a major factor in tendinopathy, which causes pain in the affected area.
