What can cause tendonitis/tendinitis?

Tendons are described as bands of fibrous collagen tissue, attaching your muscles to your bones. By overusing these tendons with repetitive movements, they may become irritated or inflamed, which can result in chronic pain and restricted mobility of the affected joint.

What are the different forms of tendonitis?

The most common types of tendonitis are:

  • Achilles tendonitis: back and sides of your heel & lower part of the calf
  • Shoulder tendonitis (or rotator cuff tendonitis)
  • De Quervain’s tenosynovitis: wrist and thumb tendonitis, often happening in young mothers carrying their baby, or in people who work in an office
  • Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow: elbow joint affected, also known as lateral and medial epicondylitis
  • Patellar tendonitis: affects the tendon that connects the kneecap to the shinbone

What can physiotherapy do to treat tendonitis?

Physiotherapy will be able to determine which factor led to the inflammation or irritation of the affected tendon, and will help release the symptoms of tendonitis with various physio techniques such as:

  • Deep friction massage: accelerates the recovery from tendonitis, often used on professional athletes
  • Mobilisation
  • Stretching and strengthening to avoid any risk of recurrence
  • Cold therapy

You can also help in fastening your recovery and relieve from the pain by stretching every day and applying ice on your injury during 15 to 20 minutes, twice a day.
