The medical community uses the term Tendinopathy as it means that a tendon is “suffering”. It represents pain and dysfunction within a tendon regardless of the pathology. The word does not directly relate to pathological states of a tendon like; tendinitis, tendinosis, paratenonitis, tenosynovitis. Saying that, it is very hard to have tendon pain without pathology, but it is extremely possible to have pathology without pain. Tendinopathy can occur in any tendon of the human body.
