Overuse can occur in any tendon throughout the body and this usually occurs at the boney attachment, but can also occur in the mid-portion of the tendon, most commonly seen in the Achilles tendon. The cause of tendinopathy has been linked to the repetitive energy storage and release with excessive compression. The quantity, intensity and frequency of this load are unknown, as it can differ from person to person. This component is considered to be 1 factor (extrinsic), another is the intrinsic factors which can include a person's’ biomechanics, body composition, age, gender etc. Previous theories have thought that tendinopathy develops through inflammation via the collagen fibre separation and degeneration through repetitive overload causing microtrauma but studies have shown that in chronic Achilles tendon pain there is an absence of inflammation. The term tendinosis has also been given to patients who have tendon pain.
