Tendonitis Treatment at Monmouth Pain

 

What is Tendonitis?

 

Tendonitis is a condition that occurs when the motion of a tendon is impaired, thus becoming inflamed and causing pain. The term ‘tendonitis’ literally translates to ‘inflammation of the tendon.’

It’s important to understand the purpose of the tendon in a discussion of the disorder. A tendon is a structure in the body that connects the muscles to the bones. Skeletal muscles are responsible for moving bones and enabling a number of actions such as walking, jumping, or moving in any way. In this process, the muscle contracts and pulls on a bone, thereby causing movement. The structure that transmits the force necessary for this process to occur is the tendon.

For a variety of reasons, tendons may become inflamed. In this case, the action of pulling the muscle becomes painful or irritating and the normal smooth gliding motion of the tendon is impaired. This is tendonitis.

There are various types of tendonitis, all of which are referred to by the part of the body that has been affected; for example, Achilles tendonitis affects the Achilles tendon, while patellar tendonitis (also called jumper’s knee) concerns the patellar tendon.

Whichever tendonitis you are experiencing, the team of Sports Medicine specialists, chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, and Occupational Therapists are ready to serve you.
