Tendons are the connections of the muscle to the bone. The two most common types of tendon injuries are tendinitis and tears. We learned about tendinitis in our blog post in October 2020.
A more serious degree of tendon injury is a tear. Tendons that are commonly torn are the Achilles, rotator cuff, biceps, triceps and pec major. Achilles tendon tears can affect even young, healthy athletes such as Kevin Durant and Cam Akers. Fortunately, tears of the Achilles respond wll to the appropriate treatment. Check these links to learn more about Achilles tendon tears, triceps tears, and pectoralis major tears.
