Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon (i.e., the cords that connect muscles to bones). The most common location for tendonitis is shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and heels. Tendonitis feels like a dull ache or tenderness and may also be accompanied by slight swelling.
What causes a tendonitis?
Tendonitis is most often caused by repeated movement over time. People whose occupations require repetitive motions may suffer from tendonitis. Certain sports are also associated with tendonitis (e.g., tennis elbow).
Chiropractic treatment for tendonitis
Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve pain from tendonitis. Chiropractic is a safe, non-invasive, way to treat and manage tendonitis pain. Dr. Hunter will develop a customized treatment plan that identifies the underlying cause of your tendonitis pain and also takes into account your age, medical history and lifestyle.
