Tendonitis Therapy And Treatment
Have you ever heard anyone complain of pain and tenderness around the joints? There are high chances they were suffering from Tendonitis. Any inflammation or irritation that affects a tendon is known as Tendonitis. For those who don’t know, a tendon is a thick fibrous structure that appears cord-like. These structures are responsible for the attachment between a bone and a muscle.
One question around this topic is whether these inflammations can occur to any tendon in the body. The general answer to this question is, yes, they can. However, the tendons mostly affected by Tendonitis are the ones around the shoulders, wrists, elbows, legs, and knees. These common problems have led to the condition being termed as Tennis elbow, Pitcher’s shoulder, Swimmer’s shoulder, and Jumper’s knees.
Most are the times when this condition vanishes by itself after a series of painful periods. You can treat the minute cases with ample rest, simple therapy sessions, and even pain reduction medications. However, if the pain still persists, it would be advisable to seek medical assistance from your therapist.
