Tendon Pain??? What is it?

Maybe its a tendinopathy!

What is tendinopathy?

Tendinopathy is a term used to describe any disorder or injury that affects the tendons, which are the fibrous tissues that connect muscles to bones.

It is a common condition that can cause pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the affected area.

Various factors, including overuse, injury, aging, and certain medical conditions, can cause tendinopathy.

There are two main types of tendinopathy: tendonitis, inflammation of the tendon, and tendinosis, which is degeneration of the tendon.

It can occur in any part of the body where tendons are present, including the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles.

As with any pain, minimising the actions that cause the pain is first. Soft tissue treatment of the associated muscles and directly treating the tendon can help reduce the symptoms associated with this annoying condition.

Depending on the location of the tendinopathy can also determine how long it takes to heal. Do not be discouraged or disheartened to hear it can take six months to 2 years to recover. More often than not, and with treatment, recovery is within a year.
