Tendinitis is simply inflammation that’s causing warmth, pain and swelling while tendinopathy or tendinosis is a completely different story. In late 20th century, studies have shown that tendinopathy is much more relevant to tendon pains than inflammation. If you are experiencing pain on & off for while, you might want to get it checked out by your physiotherapist. A good physio will always tell you what you should do and shouldn’t, as well as certain exercises. One particular thing your physio shouldn’t tell you to do for tendinopathy is stretching.
