Golfer's elbow

Medial epicondylitis
It most commonly occurs around the shoulder (rotator cuff tendinitis, biceps tendinitis), elbow (tennis elbow, golfer's elbow), wrist, hip, knee (jumper's knee), or ankle (Achilles tendinitis).
Golfer's elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is tendinosis of the medial epicondyle on the inside of the elbow.

Inflammation

A few weeks following an injury little inflammation remains, with the underlying problem related to weak or disrupted tendon fibrils.

Calcific tendinitis

Hydroxyapatite deposition diseasecalcific periarthritisCalcific tendinitis of shoulder
Calcific tendinitis is a form of tendinitis, a disorder characterized by deposits of hydroxyapatite (a crystalline calcium phosphate) in any tendon of the body, but most commonly in the tendons of the rotator cuff (shoulder), causing pain and inflammation.

Tendon

Tendinopathy, also known as tendinitis or tendonitis, is a type of tendon disorder that results in pain, swelling, and impaired function.
There are various forms of tendinopathies or tendon injuries due to overuse.

Tennis elbow

lateral epicondylitisHumeral EpicondyleLateral Epicondylalgia
It most commonly occurs around the shoulder (rotator cuff tendinitis, biceps tendinitis), elbow (tennis elbow, golfer's elbow), wrist, hip, knee (jumper's knee), or ankle (Achilles tendinitis).
It is classified as a chronic tendinosis, not a tendinitis.

Achilles tendinitis

Achilles tendonitis
It most commonly occurs around the shoulder (rotator cuff tendinitis, biceps tendinitis), elbow (tennis elbow, golfer's elbow), wrist, hip, knee (jumper's knee), or ankle (Achilles tendinitis).
This eccentric training method is especially important for individuals with chronic Achilles tendinosis which is classified as the degeneration of collagen fibers.

Less commonly steroid injections or surgery may be done.

Low-level laser therapy

There is tentative evidence that low-level laser therapy may also be beneficial in treating tendinopathy.
Despite a lack of consensus over its validity, some studies suggest that LLLT may be modestly effective, in relieving short-term pain for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, chronic low back pain, acute and chronic neck pain, tendinopathy, and possibly, chronic joint disorders.

Bowed tendon

Bowed tendon is a horseman's term for tendinitis (inflammation) and tendinosis (degeneration), most commonly seen in the superficial digital flexor tendon in the front leg of horses.
Tendinitis/tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon.

Nitroglycerin (medication)

nitroglyceringlyceryl trinitratenitroglycerine
The use of a nitric oxide delivery system (glyceryl trinitrate patches) applied over the area of maximal tenderness was found to reduce pain and increase range of motion and strength.
Tentative evidence indicates efficacy of glyceryl trinitrate in the treatment of various tendinopathies, both in pain management and acceleration of soft tissue repair.

Achilles tendon

Achilles tendinosis is the soreness or stiffness of the tendon, particularly worse when exercising, and generally due to overuse.
