Where do muscle and tendon problems come from?
The body has 640 muscles. Tendons are the tough tissue where muscles attach to the bone. Muscle and tendon problems are often from overuse or underuse. A careful, thorough examination is critical to finding the source of your problem. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, and psychological stress can cause or complicate muscle and tendon pain. Most muscle and tendon problems are brought on by an accumulation of daily activities that bring on problems over a period of time.
