Tendonitis is a painful condition that can worsen over time and cause you to stop some of your regular activities. At NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine, we can help treat your pain and help you get back to your everyday routine.
Our team of professionals consisting of physical therapists, surgeons, physician assistants, chiropractors, sports medicine doctors, and acupuncturists will work with you to understand your case of tendonitis, provide an effective remedy, and educate you about your condition.
Your tendons are the tough and flexible bands that connect your muscles to your bones. Tendonitis occurs when these bands become irritated, torn, or inflamed, leading to pain and tenderness. A severe case of tendonitis can even lead to the rupture of the tendon and the need for surgery.
Tendonitis usually happens because of continual repetitive motion, which makes the tendon begin to tighten and tear.
Tendonitis happens in the areas of your body that you use most regularly. Most tendonitis cases have to do with your biceps, triceps, and elbows. Other areas that can be subject to this condition include:
- Achilles tendon
Since tendonitis is caused by repeated motion, there are certain activities that lead to this inflammation of your tendons. Here are some common causes:
- Playing guitar
HOW TO TREAT TENDONITIS
Tendonitis treatment can help heal the inflamed area in up to six weeks. Some popular tendonitis treatment options include physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, using a brace, icing the injured area, PRP injections and, in worst cases, surgery.
During your initial consultation with us, a member of our staff will learn about the location and severity of your pain and develop a course of action to minimize your pain through effective tendonitis treatment.
In addition to providing tendonitis treatment, we make it one of our goals to give you information to avoid further injury. You can prevent tendonitis by stretching, warming up your muscles, and practicing correct techniques when performing various activities. It is important also to build up your activity level gradually and to stop immediately if you feel unusual or recurring pain.
