Do you suffer from Tendonitis and would like to learn more?
What is a Tendon? What is Tendonitis? What are the main causes of Tendonitis? How did it happen, and how can you treat it? I often get asked these questions in my physiotherapy clinic!
A tendon is basically a type of tissue that connects a muscle to a bone, and if it gets inflamed, the condition is called tendonitis It is a condition that Physiotherapists treat on a daily basis.
It commonly occurs in the shoulder, elbow, knee, wrist and heel, although it can happen anywhere that tendons are found in the body.
I have put together some easy to understand articles that explains tendonitis - perhaps a good place to start is with the page that looks at the causes, symptoms and how you treat Tendonitis.
When tendons in your hip are working well they glide perfectly as their related muscle contracts. When a tendon is inflamed the action of their contracting muscle pulling on them irritates them further and more inflammation and pain results.
Shoulder tendonitis is an inflammation of a tendon attaching to your shoulder. Although there are many tendons involved in your shoulder the most common tendonitis’s that I see in my physiotherapy practice relate to the rotator cuff complex.
