Tendinitis Physical Therapy

Tendinitis Physical Therapy Treatment
Hands-On Care. Long-term, Effective Tendinitis Pain Relief

I was skeptical about going to physical therapy but so glad I did. My therapist, Whitney has been wonderful in every way and is helping my knee problem. I am so very happy I decided to come to Therapydia.

Even with just a few sessions so far, I can already tell and improvement in my range of motion. The one on one care received at Therapydia is significantly better than other office where the therapist is treating 2-4 patient during same appointment.

Whitney is great! She is hands on and gives me her full attention in my care. She teaches me what exercises to do at home, she prints them out for me as I am a visual person, she explains everything to me and why also. I really do enjoy my PT visits with Whitney. She is caring, kind and knowledgeable. Thank yo

Tendinitis Pain Treatment

Tendons are fibrous connective tissue that attach muscle to bone. When tendons are inflamed or irritated, tendinitis occurs. Tendinitis most commonly occurs around the joints including shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and heels.

Tendinitis can be caused by an acute injury but is most often caused by repetitive motions to the affected area. Incorrect movement or overuse can lead to tendinitis – without proper conditioning and stretching, micro tears in your tendons can occur. Age also plays a factor in determining tendinitis risk. As we age, tendons can’t handle as much stress and tear more easily. Using proper technique when playing a sport or doing job-related activities can decrease your tendinitis risks.

Signs & Symptoms

    Identifying the causes of tendinitis can be multifactorial. Without addressing the root of your tendinitis, you may increase your risk of getting a tendon rupture and may require surgery to repair. However, most cases of tendinitis can be treated with rest and physical therapy.

    Common symptoms:
    • Dull ache, especially when affected joint (arm, elbow, shoulder, etc.)
    • Weakness
    • Tenderness
    • Inflammation/swelling

    Common names for various forms of tendinitis include:
    • Tennis/golfer’s elbow
    • Swimmer’s shoulder
    • Jumper’s knee
    • Pitcher’s shoulder

Why Physical Therapy

    Your physical therapist will help you pinpoint the source of your tendinitis pain and develop a custom treatment program based on your needs and goals. At Therapydia, we utilize hands-on techniques such as myofascial release to eliminate pain and restore motion. By applying gentle sustained pressure, your physical therapist can accurately detect fascial restrictions and facilitate release of the fascia. During your first visit, your PT will look at the state of your tissues, joints, and spinal alignment while collecting baseline measurements of your range of motion, mobility, flexibility, and levels of pain. Your treatment could include a combination of methods that address tendinitis pain:

    • Manual therapy: Hands-on techniques to remove restrictions and improve range of motion.
    • Custom exercises: Strengthening and mobility exercises to develop more efficient movement patterns around the affected tendon to treat chronic tendon inflammation.
    • Sport-specific movement analysis: Retrain your movement patterns during your sport such as running form to prevent re-injury
