Tendonitis, also known as tendinitis, is the inflammation of a tendon. Tendinitis is a type of tendinopathy - a disease of the tendon. Tendinosis is similar to tendinitis, but requires different treatment. Tendinitis refers to larger-scale acute (sudden, short-term) injuries with inflammation.Usually tendinitis is referred to by the body part involved, for example, Achilles tendinitis which affects the Achilles tendon, or patellar tendinitis which affects the patellar tendon (jumper's knee). Tendinitis can occur in various other parts of the body, including the elbow, wrist, finger, or thigh. It is caused by overusing a tendon or injuring it, as may happen during sport.Signs and symptoms include
The pain which may get worse when one uses the tendon.
One may have more pain and stiffness during the night or when one gets up in the morning.
The area may be tender, red, warm, or swollen if there is inflammation.
One may notice a crunchy sound or feeling when one use the tendon.
HOW IS TENDONITIS DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis would be done by an orthopaedic who would examine the area and do an X-ray or scan to check the damage.
HOW IS TENDONITIS TREATED?
Treatment is aimed at relieving pain and reducing inflammation. In many cases rest, applying ice packs to the affected area, and OTC (over-the-counter, no prescription required) pain relievers are all that the patient needs. Tendinitis symptoms may last from just a few days to several weeks or months. A physical therapist may be able to manipulate and massage the affected area, providing helpful relief and accelerating the healing process. Injecting a steroid around the affected tendon, or even into the tendon sheath may help alleviate symptoms.
DID YOU KNOW?
Surgery is rarely needed to treat tendonitis. It is reserved for cases that do not respond to other types of treatment or when there is significant tendon damage that is unlikely to improve with any other treatment.
