Tendonitis, also spelled as tendinitis, is a common condition characterized by inflammation or irritation of a tendon, the thick fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone. This condition can cause pain, tenderness, and mild swelling at the nearest joint. It can occur in various parts of the body, particularly in areas where tendons are subjected to repeated stress or overuse. Whether you have acute tendonitis or long-term overuse tendinosis, physical therapy can be a valuable treatment option for the condition, no matter where it occurs in the body. Our team at EW Motion Therapy can help create an individualized treatment plan for any type of tendonitis, keeping your goals in mind and helping you return to the activities you love.
