Clinical Information For the Treatment Of Tendinitis
What Is Tendinitis?
Tendinitis - Basics
Tendinitis is the inflammation of a tendon, the band of tissue that connects muscle to bones in the body. This condition usually occurs in tendons that experience a repeated motion or stress (such is the case with athletes and carpenters) or in conjunction with another condition such as gout, arthritis, or infection. Common areas affected by tendinitis include the rotator cuff, biceps, knee and the Achilles tendon. The main symptom of tendinitis is tenderness and pain around the affected joint tendon.
