Objective: This self-directed learning module highlights tendinopathy associated with sports and performing arts. It is part of the study guide on sports and performing arts medicine in the Self-Directed Physiatric Education Program for practitioners and trainees in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Using a case vignette format, this article specifically focuses on the etiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic imaging, and management recommendations for tendinopathy. The goal of this article is to allow the learner to better describe the pathophysiology and diagnostic imaging characteristics of tendinopathy, and to formulate an appropriate nonsurgical management algorithm for tendinopathies.
