A series of non-progressive myopathies have been found (central core disease, centronuclear myopathy, myofibrillar disproportion), when muscles of patients with spontaneous tendon ruptures were examined. Pathological muscle actions, uneven pulling force on the tendons, disturbances in the nervous feedback between tendons and muscles and the role of myopathies in the alteration of resting and working muscle tone by affecting the typing-I muscle fibers are thought to be pathogenic factors in the spontaneous tendon ruptures associated with non-progressive myopathies.
