Tendon Problems

Tendon injuries range from mild strains to severe tendonitis, ruptures, or tears. Tendon injuries are common in the hand, foot, bicep, thigh and knee, and most prevalent among middle-aged people.

Tendons attach muscle to bone.

Flexor tendon injuries, Achilles tendinitis, and tendon tears are common tendon injuries. A deep cut on the palm side of your fingers, hand, wrist or forearm can damage your flexor tendons. Flexor tendons help control movement in your hand. Achilles tendinitis is a common condition that causes heel pain. Biceps tendon tears can occur at the elbow or shoulder. A patellar tendon tear can be a disabling injury requiring surgery to regain full knee function.
