What is Tendonitis Pain and how can we help?
Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon. It usually occurs in the elbow, but can affect other joints as well. It’s frequently caused by repetitive motion, overuse or sudden motions that put pressure on the tendon and surrounding tissue.
Causes and Risk Factors
Tendonitis can cause pain and swelling in the affected area. It’s unclear what exactly causes tendonitis, but there are some risk factors that can increase a person’s chance of developing this condition. Some of these include a heavy workload, lack of breaks from repetitive motions, an injury to the affected area, regular physical overuse and an injury or overuse in another part of the body.
Treating Tendonitis Pain
At STG Health and Wellness, we offer a treatment option known as massage therapy. Massage therapy involves applying pressure on the inflamed tendon or muscles by using your hands or just your fingers. The pressure applied during the massage therapy has an effect on muscle relaxation which in turn reduces inflammation and pain. Contact us today to speak to a specialist about your next steps.
