We help patients who are experiencing pain are seeking a diagnosis and relief from their symptoms.
Tendonitis is the medical term for an inflammation or irritation of a tendon as a result of over-use or strain on a joint which causes pain and tenderness just outside the joint, which is why it is often linked to sporting injuries. The tendon is the thick fibrous cord that attaches muscles to the bone.
It therefore most commonly affects shoulders , elbows , wrists, kneels and heels although thumbs can also be affected too.
The main tendonitis conditions have all got their own “pet” names which reflect the area of the body affected rather than just the sport from which the name derives
