Causes of Tendon Pain

Tendons are strong, flexible bands of connective tissue that connect muscle to bone, and transmit the energy needed to allow muscles and bones to create movement. Tendon injuries can result from activities that involve repetitive motion, and over time these injuries can generate micro-tears within the collagen fibers of the tendon. When a tendon is unable to heal, scar tissue can form which may cause pain and limit range in motion.
