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.
