Tennis elbow and Achilles tendinitis are examples of tendon-related disorders. They are also forms of musculoskeletal tendon is the connector that transfers power from your muscle generators to your skeletal structure to create movement.

For example, myoclonic jerking may develop in patients with multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Myoclonic jerks commonly occur in persons with epilepsy, a disorder in which the electrical activity in the brain becomes disordered leading to seizures.".
