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. Common conditions related to tendonitis include:

- 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.

Treatment Options

Below are common treatment options for tendonitis, and tendon injuries. During your appointment, talk to your provider about the treatment plan that’s right for you.
