Abstract

Tendon disorders are commonly seen in clinical practice. Their successful treatment is difficult and patients often experience symptoms for prolonged periods of time. At present the aetiology of tendon disorders remains unclear, with several factors having been implicated. An improved understanding of tendon injury and healing is essential to enable focused treatment strategies to be devised.
