We now know that there is no inflammatory component with painful tendons, rather it is the increase or decrease in your activity that changes the structure and integrity of the tendon.
Ligaments that hold the joint in position can be damaged from sporting collisions, mis-steps or falls. Usually, there will be localised bruising, bleeding, swelling, redness and heat for the first few days. Ligaments have nerve fibres within them that tell the brain about balance, which if not properly rehabilitated is the reason why ligament sprains reoccur and the joint just doesn’t feel right.
Muscle fibres can tear with sudden explosive movements, over-striding or trauma. Usually, there is bruising which can track down the limb, and local swelling. If not properly strengthened, then it can always remain a vulnerable muscle that gets re-injured very easily.
