- This is a common overuse injury in activities with high running loads, jumping and kicking
- There can often be multiple contributing factors driving the development and persistence of symptoms
- With the effect of age, tendonitis ( an acute inflammatory disorder) can develop to a tendinopathy ( degenerative condition within the tendon)
