Abstract

Tendinopathies are one of the most common sport injuries (30% to 50% of the athlete’s injuries). The tendon are essentially composed of type I collagen fibers and, to a lesser extent, elastic fibers. This type of fibers does not have great elongation capacity, increasing only about 8-10% in length until they reach the point of failure. Histopathologically, tendinosis is characterized by a degenerative process with increased numbers of fibroblasts, vascular hyperplasia and collagen disorganization [1-3].
