    About Tendonitis

    Back to the top

    Tendonitis is the inflammation or irritation of a tendon - the thick connective tissue between bones and muscle. This inflammation can be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term), and commonly affects the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and Achilles tendon.

    Common symptoms of tendonitis include:
    • Pain (usually an ache) in the inflamed area
    • Swelling
    • Tenderness
    • Loss of mobility

    Tendonitis is commonly caused by repeated impact movements or a sudden injury.

    - Tennis elbow: tendonitis in the elbow and wrist that comes from repeated impact with improper form.

    - Golfer’s elbow: tendonitis that occurs in the inner part of the elbow, resulting from poor swing form.

    - Rotator cuff tendonitis: Rotator cuff inflammation commonly occurs in baseball players and swimmers as a result of repetitive throwing or swimming motions.

    In addition to repetitive motion, you may be at greater risk of developing tendonitis as you get older, or if your occupation involves:

    • Overhead pressing/ reaching
    • Scrubbing
    • Shoveling
    • Frequent impact/ vibration in the elbow and shoulder

    Many cases of tendonitis will begin to heal with self-care methods and rest. However, if you continue to perform the aggravating activity, or do not treat the inflammation, the tendon may rupture - a condition that may require surgery.

    If you are experiencing a persistent ache around a certain joint, talk to your health care provider. While most instances of tendonitis do not require emergency medical attention, it is better to begin treatment early - to avoid further aggravating the injury.
