Experts in Eliminating Inflammation and Irritation of Tendons

Tendonitis is the swelling of the tendons, which are the tissues that attach your muscles to your bones. Usually occurring in the shoulder, elbow, heel, and wrist, tendonitis is often the result of overuse, continuous repetitive movements, aging, and sometimes disease.

Common types of tendonitis

  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • deQuervain’s tenosynovitis (affecting the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist)
  • Achilles tendonitis (the tendon connecting the calf muscle to the heel bone)
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome
  • Patellar tendonitis (an injury to the connective tissue between the kneecap and shinbone)
  • Tendonitis of the wrist
