Tendonitis is a common condition that is caused by inflammation of a tendon. Tendons function to attach muscle to bone, and are a flexible, fibrous tissue. When a muscle contracts, it pulls on your bone by transmitting force through a tendon, resulting in movement of your joint. Typically, tendonitis is caused by overuse, especially if individuals advance an exercise program too quickly. The tendon has not been prepared for the new level of activity and it responds with inflammation.
