Physical Therapy for Tendonitis in Layton, Roy and Syracuse

Tendonitis is an inflammation of one or more tendons, the fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone. This irritation and inflammation occurs due to overuse or injury. Tendonitis can happen in any tendon, but it is most common in the tendons surrounding the knees, elbows, heels, shoulders, and wrists. Sports injuries are the leading cause for tendonitis, but it can also occur due to:

  • Bad posture and poor walking habits
  • Joint deformities
  • Arthritis, gout, or other related conditions

Common Symptoms of Tendonitis

  • Pain – dull and achy in the affected tendon
  • Mild swelling and tenderness
  • Weakness in the affected tendon
  • Redness
  • A small lump under the skin near affected tendon
  • Pain can occur suddenly and persist for a few days or appear as a chronic ache that comes and goes

Tendonitis is an acute condition that should heal with treatment. If left untreated, it can lead to a chronic development of tendinosis. For that reason, acute tendonitis should be treated immediately. Athletes with chronic cases of tendinosis can also find relieve with physical therapy – strengthening of the affected area will prevent further injury.

When you schedule an appointment with Rock Run, our therapists will do a physical examination to determine the extent of your injury and prepare a customized therapy plan.
