In brief: Sometimes

One of the potential causes of tendonitis is overuse by the muscle/tendon unit trying to stabilize a hypermobile joint.
This is certainly the case with the posterior tibial tendon in individuals with flexible flatfoot. However, not all tendinitis is related to joint hypermobility, so you would need to consult with your doctor to determine the cause of your tendinitis.
