"Dawn Drewes was absolutely amazing. This was my first telehealth visit ever and I felt I got the same level of care I would get in person. Good health providers can be difficult to find and Dawn Drewes is one of the good ones. Her personality really puts you at ease and she communicates beautifully. Everything we discussed was clear and concise but she is open to any questions you have if need be. I will be a loyal patient going forward."

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.
