An Overview of Tendonitis: Common Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments

Tendonitis is an inflammatory condition that can be caused by virtually any of

your daily activities. Everything from yard work to sports, physical labor, and even

poor stretching before physical activity can be the culprit of this condition and can

literally affect any area of the body where bones are connected to muscles.

While there are steps to take to help avoid tendonitis, it is extremely important to

treat the condition as soon is it begins to prevent progressive pain or additional

injury. And, with so many innovative alternative treatments available today, you can

now treat your tendonitis without the risks of surgery or the uneasiness associated

with certain medications.

Where and When Does Tendonitis Occur?

Tendonitis can occur in almost any area of the body. This means that it can affect

areas as small as your thumbs, major weight-bearing joints in your knees, as well as

frequently used joints like your elbows and shoulders.

While tendonitis is more common in adults, particularly those over 40, it’s

important to remember that anyone is at risk for this condition. Of course, it is more

likely in those who are active or people who tend to engage in difficult physical

activity only a few times per week.

Those who develop tendonitis can typically tell from the few prominent symptoms

associated with the condition, including:

• Pain in the Tendon and Surrounding Area – Individuals with tendonitis

might experience differing levels of pain. However, pain of the tendon itself

as well as of the surrounding area is to be expected.

• Limited Motion – This symptom is particularly evident for individuals who

experience tendonitis in their shoulder and will result in a loss of motion.

So, How is Tendonitis Treated?

Tendonitis is slightly different than most orthopedic inflammatory conditions

because it can be eased with several home remedies such as rest, icing the injury,

and taking anti-inflammatory drugs or applying anti-inflammatory gel.

However, not every patient will experience relief from these common treatments,

especially if your case of tendonitis is more severe. Of course, this leaves many

patients in need of corticosteroid injections, physical therapy, or surgery as

alternatives that can help reduce inflammation and promote healing.

Considering Your Alternatives: Non-Invasive, Clinically Proven Solutions

Of course, there are now other treatments that you can also turn to for tendonitis

relief. In fact, there are now many cutting-edge alternatives that offer exceptional
