Abstract

This article reviews the structure, functions and mechanical properties of normal tendons and surveys the range and causes of tendon diseases. Specialized regions of tendons are considered, including the myotendinous junction, enthesis and regions where tendons rub against bone. Particular emphasis is placed on recent literature and on aspects of tendons that are relevant to manual therapists.
