Tendinitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon — the thick fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone. The condition causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint. While tendinitis can occur in any of your tendons, it’s most common around your shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and heels.
Tendonitis is a common condition that results in the inflammation of the tendons, the tissues that connect muscle to bone. It can be caused by overuse, repetitive motions, or direct trauma to the area. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, and tenderness in the affected area. If you are living with tendinitis pain, Dr. Myrna Zalaket can help.
Treatment for tendinitis typically focuses on relieving pain and inflammation. This can be done with rest, ice, and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications. Physical therapy exercises may also help treat tendonitis. In some cases, corticosteroid injections or surgery may be necessary to treat severe tendinitis.
