Undiagnosed pain near your joint, such as in the elbow, hip, knee, shoulder, wrist or ankle that isn't the result of a specific injury may really be tendinitis. The pain often results from overuse of specific muscles and is commonly aggravated by continued movement. Tendonitis causes irritation, inflammation and scar tissue where the tendon is attached to the bone, and may require weeks or even months to return to normal, causing continuing stiffness and an inability to perform normal functions. Tendinitis symptoms can vary from mild to extremely painful, and may even interrupt sleep.
Tendons act as a kind of "pulley" to smooth the connection between muscles and bones in the body. Those tendons can also become crimped by surrounding bony structures and are subject to tears that are occasionally severe enough to require surgery. Tendinitis is typically characterized by pain, stiffness and diminished movement capability. It sometimes mimics the chronic pain of arthritis. Sometimes, the pain may be relieved by alternating applications of cold and heat, or by total immobilization.
Chiropractic Treatment for Tendinitis Pain
Our Chiropractic Doctors may order X-rays or MRI images in order to accurately diagnose tendinitis and formulate a treatment plan.
Following a physical exam, review of medical history and appropriate tests, our Chiropractor will develop a comprehensive treatment plan to help restore comfort and flexibility to the afflicted joint. Chiropractic therapy may include gentle mobilization and massage of the tendon and associated tissue, ultrasound treatment at the point of pain, electrical muscle stimulation, applications of heat and cold, strengthening exercises and general physical therapy. Nutritional support is also offered to promote natural tissue healing.
