In vivo adaptation of tendon material properties in healthy and diseased tendons with application to rotator cuff disease
Degenerative disorders of the rotator cuff tendons account for nearly 75% of all shoulder pain, causing considerable pain and morbidity. Given the strong correlation between age and tendinopathy, and unprecedented population aging, these disorders will become increasingly prevalent.
