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.
