Role of inflammation in tendinopathy

Does evidence support the theory of a causal role of inflammation in tendinopathy?

In recent literature, especially over the last 3-6 years, there is an increasing support for the presence of an inflammatory component to tendinopathy, as more robust definitions of inflammation have begun to be used.

If this continues to be confirmed, then mechanisms of tendon pathology and therapeutic options can be studied and tested with greater objectivity. Additionally, new preventative measures can be taken to limit the progression and tendinopathy.
