The suf­fix -itis denotes inflammation – so the tis­sue (in this case a ten­don) is inflamed. An -osis refers to de­gen­er­a­tion – the tis­sue is suf­fer­ing from wear and tear. An -osis nearly al­ways re­sponds to strength­en­ing ex­er­cises; an -itis needs time for the inflammation to set­tle down. Sarah Con­nors, phys­io­ther­a­pist
