Tendons themselves are cords of tough, fibrous connective tissue that attach muscles to bones. Tendons are found throughout the entire human body. Tendonitis is the inflammation and irritation of these tendons. If the normal smooth gliding motion of a tendon is impaired the tendon will become inflamed and tendonitis will start to occur. Tendonitis, if it's caught early, can be easily treated and cured.
