This commonly recommended intervention for chronic tendon pain and tightness can involve sewing together tears, cutting the tendon to try to get it to heal, or lengthening a tight tendon. While this approach may lead to relief of the tightness and surrounding symptoms, the body is precisely balanced, and the shortening or lengthening of the tendon often leads to other problems. Moreover, whatever biomechanical problem led to the initial tendon injury has not been resolved.
