Tendinitis Physical Therapy Treatment
One-On-One, Hands-On Care. Effective Tendinitis Pain Relief
A few months ago, out of the blue, I started to have hip pain that ran down my leg while I ran. It got to the point where I’d have to hobble home after two miles. I went to see Jay and he had me pretty much back to normal in two sessions.
After a few weeks of doing the exercises and up to not I have not experienced knee pain and have been able to slowly increase activity. I hope to continue on this path and will be forever grateful for Jason and the advice and guidance provided. Also, Nikki was very helpful not only in clinic but in figuring out my insurance situation, as I know nothing of that world. It was a great experience and I am so thankful for my knee to not be hurting.
It took him very little time at all to zero in on the knee and leg problems I was experiencing. His massages, stretches, and exercises are right to the point for me. The clinic is still small and in the start-up mode, and Jason is able to provide personal attention to his clients. This is a really good place and I can recommend it wholeheartedly.
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.
• Dull ache, especially when affected joint (arm, elbow, shoulder, etc.)
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
