I had Achilles tendonosis for a while and found a sort of management place with it. I warm up thoroughly, do post tennis warm-down (walk for about 10 mins) stretches and also off-day stretches often twice a day concentrating on the lower part of the calf. I also do the rolling pin exercise too (can't find the video at the second) which is a Godsend for calf niggles.

Tendonitis however is a whole other story as Ollinger mentions above.
I've had this injury for 4-5 months now, so would that be a sign of tendinosis and not tendinitis? Im kinda confused, cause I have tendinosis in my right shoulder as well, but while I read that tendinosis is "degeneration" of the tendon, my doctor is telling me that my tendinosis is "chronic" inflammation, so kinda like long-term tendonitis?
