Abstract Overuse tendon injuries (tendinopathies) present a challenge to sports medicine patients and clinicians. Despite the high prevalence of tendinopathy in recreational and competitive athletes, treatment is often hampered by contradictory definitions and descriptions of the underlying pathology, with a limited repertoire of evidence-based treatments. This review provides the clinician with a basic overview of tendon structure and pathophysiology, and highlights the most common tendinopathies affecting the upper and lower extremities, including an update on recent advances in conservative management.
