In brief: Avoid overuse

Tendonitis is most often really a "soft tissue fatigue fracture" the tendon wears out because as we get older than 20 - 30 our tissues heal more slowly.
Tennis elbow, shoulder "bursitis" , achilles tendonitis and patellar tendonitis are usually really tendonosis. The failure of micro trauma (usually from overuse) to heal. Rest and gentle eccentric exercises can often resolve symptoms in time.
