Tendinitis

Tendons are the attachments of muscles to bones, and the suffix "itis" means inflammation. Inflammation of the tendons is a common injury that can occur, usually with a new activity or increase of activity.

You may have heard your tendinitis called "Golfer's Elbow," "Tennis Elbow," or "Runner's Knee." The approach to treating this has several facets. You may need to rest from your aggravating motion or activity to let this area heal, as well as use anti-inflammatory treatments. Your doctor may suggest a steroid injection to directly affect the swelling. Keeping the joint and surrounding muscles stretched is helpful, as well as strengthening your muscles.

Physical Therapy treatments can help decrease your pain and get you back into the activity that you love!
