Tendonitis - What is it?

Tendonitis - What is it?

Tendonitis is basically inflammation of a tendon, causing pain.

This pain will be felt at a joint because a tendon attaches muscle to a bone.

The area will be sore to move and is usually weak. A small lump (lesion) is usually felt on the tendon at the joint. This can be very sore to touch, red and at times swollen.

Generally the best cure for tendonitis is REST! It is too sore to use the affected area so the brain is giving us a clue here.
Ice is also recommended to get rid of the swelling and the inflammation.
Some individuals will find a crepe or tubular bandage is useful in giving support and this will also aid with swelling and performing general day to day activities.
