Tendinitis occurs when a tendon becomes inflamed from overuse or injury. Tendons are located all throughout the body and are the tissue that connects the muscle to the bone. Tendinitis may cause a variety of symptoms, such as pain when movement occurs or swelling at the site of injury. In order to relieve the inflammation and pain, Hiller Chiropractic uses advanced tendinitis treatments such as cold laser therapy, kinesio taping, and massage therapy to accelerate the healing process.
Causes of Tendinitis
Many athletes, including runners, swimmers, golfers, basketball players, baseball players, and more, develop tendinitis due to the repetitive nature of their sport. The overuse of these muscles puts strain on the tendons and causes inflammation. Certain professions and job duties that require repetitious motions and unnatural positions are also at a high risk for developing tendinitis. Age can also be a cause of tendinitis, as the tendons weaken and become less flexible as you get older. We are dedicated to helping you live your best life by providing professional and effective tendinitis treatment.
Common Areas Where It Occurs
Since your body has many tendons all over, any tendon has the potential to become damaged, inflamed, or torn. Tendinitis is commonly seen in the inner elbow (called golfer's elbow) or outer elbow (tennis elbow), but can also occur in the following:
- Achilles tendon
- And more
If tendinitis is left untreated, and repetitious movement continues, the tendons can tear and fail. This failure will most likely require surgery and other invasive procedures to repair, which is why it's important to treat the inflammation at the source with our chiropractic care.
