Understanding Tendinitis

Tendinitis, also referred to as tendonitis, occurs when a tendon that is located between your bones and muscles becomes inflamed. It is most common in the shoulders, wrists, thumbs, elbows, heels, hips, and knees. Repetitive activities like gardening, shoveling, running, playing tennis, and golf can increase your chances of developing tendinitis. Along with that, certain factors like age, profession, and health conditions can also lead to the condition.

Symptoms of Tendinitis

Tendinitis can produce symptoms that range from mild to intense. They can happen suddenly and often last for days or weeks. Specialized treatment and therapy may be required if the symptoms last longer than a few days. However, signs of tendinitis do not damage or permanently alter the bones or joints. Some symptoms of tendinitis include:

  • Joint pain and tenderness
  • Stiff joints
  • Cracking or popping in the joint
  • Swelling
  • Discoloration
  • Limited range of motion
  • Pain that becomes worse with movement
  • Pain at night

  • Muscle strain
