What Is Tendonitis?

Jul 28, 2020 | Pain Management

Shoulder Tendonitis

Tendonitis is a condition where the tendons, which attached muscles to the bones, become inflamed. The area around the joints will become irritated, tender and painful.

Tendonitis is most commonly the result of overuse. Repetitive motions such as swinging a golf club or a pitcher throwing a baseball hundreds and hundreds of times will inflame and irritate the tendon of the joint. The result will be swelling, redness, tenderness and pain.

Once injured and irritated, the tendons will produce a dull ache. If the activity is continued without rest then the ability to move the wrist, elbow or shoulder becomes difficult without pain or discomfort. Without proper rest and treatment the end result will be constant severe pain and possibly damage to the tendon.

People engaged in sports, repetitive activity or work are most likely susceptible to tendonitis.  Some sports such as baseball, golf and tennis tendonitis will be more prevalent due to the mechanism of the sport. Jobs, where someone will perform a repetitive task such as a painter, will be likely to develop tendonitis at one point or another in their career.

In almost all cases, tendonitis can be treated without medical intervention. The use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and cortisone injections can be helpful in severe cases but are not necessary in treating tendonitis. Most of the time rest coupled with therapy will take care of tendonitis in a few weeks in our office.

At Monmouth Pain, treatment is centered at first around pain relief and decreasing swelling. As pain diminishes, removing inflammation from the joint is the next step through the use of non-invasive therapies. Lastly, rehabilitating the joint by improving range of motion, strength and stability is where someone will be well prepared to return to work or their respective sport.
