Understand the strain on the Achilles tendon and the patella tendon. Biomechanical challenges and weight distribution issues along with different types of exercise can really torque the Achilles and patella tendon forcing aches and pains to occur in the surrounding areas. Joints cannot maintain structural integrity if the tendons that support the joint are compromised.
When we refer to connective tissue here we are referring to the tendons that connect the muscles to the insertion points, which allows the joint to be stable and function properly. This also allows for proper muscular functionality as well.
