Relief from Tendonitis Pain: Expert Care at Our Clinic

Tendonitis, also known as tendinitis, is a common condition characterized by inflammation or irritation of a tendon, the thick cord that attaches muscle to bone. At Our Clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating tendonitis, offering comprehensive care to help our patients find relief from pain and regain function in affected areas.

Understanding Tendonitis

Tendonitis can occur in any tendon in the body but most commonly affects the tendons in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles. It is often caused by repetitive movements, overuse, or sudden injury, leading to microtears and inflammation in the affected tendon. Common types of tendonitis include:

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

Golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis)

Achilles tendonitis

Rotator cuff tendonitis

Patellar tendonitis (jumper's knee)

De Quervain's tenosynovitis (wrist tendonitis)

Posterior tibial tendonitis

Symptoms of Tendonitis

The symptoms of tendonitis can vary depending on the affected tendon but often include:

Pain, tenderness, or swelling in the affected area

Stiffness or limited range of motion

Weakness in the affected muscle

Pain that worsens with movement or activity

Crepitus or crackling sensation with movement

Comprehensive Treatment Options

At Our Clinic, we offer a variety of treatment options for tendonitis, tailored to the specific needs and goals of each patient. Treatment may include:

Rest: Resting the affected tendon and avoiding activities that exacerbate symptoms can help reduce inflammation and promote healing.

Ice therapy: Applying ice packs to the affected area can help reduce pain and inflammation.

Physical therapy: A customized physical therapy program may be prescribed to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the affected tendon and surrounding muscles.

Orthotics or braces: Orthotic inserts or braces may be recommended to provide support and alleviate stress on the affected tendon.

Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroid injections may be prescribed to reduce pain and inflammation.

Shockwave therapy: Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) may be used to stimulate healing and reduce pain in chronic cases of tendonitis.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy: PRP injections may be recommended to promote tissue regeneration and accelerate healing in stubborn cases of tendonitis.

Surgical intervention: In severe or chronic cases of tendonitis that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgery may be necessary to repair or remove damaged tissue.
