Time to Take Action and Manage the Tendonitis Pain!
Tendonitis is essentially the inflammation of your tendon, or a disease of your tendon. Tendonitis usually represents the body part on question. For instance if it’s your heel that has this issue it’s called Achilles tendonitis. Jumper’s knee is another one that’s also referred to as patellar tendinitis. And of course there’s also golfer’s elbow. Other common areas where this disease occurs are the wrist, finger, or upper thigh.
What Triggers Tendonitis?
Healthline.com specialists say this condition triggers intense pain and tenderness which makes it very difficult to maneuver the affected area. Some of these causes are:
*Tenosynovitis or Tendon Sheath Inflammation
*Systemic Gonococcal Infection
*Genetically Elevated Bad Cholesterol
SPORTS INJURIES are recognized as one of the most common triggers of tendonitis.
Symptoms of Tendonitis are:
*A dull ache-y pain that occurs especially when you are moving the sore joint or limb
*Consistent and noticeable tenderness
*Mild swelling accompanied with pain
Some of the Major Risk Factors are…
*Occupation – There are jobs where tendonitis is more common, such as those with repetitive motions, weird positions, vibration or forceful exertion, and lots of reaching up over your head.
Dental hygienist comes to mind.
*Age – When you age your joints, muscles, and tendons harden and become less flexible, and this causes injuries to occur more easily. A 65 year-old reaching up high to put things on a shelf is much more likely to injure himself or herself than a very tall 12 year-old!
*Sports – If you are very athletic you increase the chances of developing tendonitis at some point. In particular, sports with repetitive forceful movements increase your risk. A few common ones are basketball, baseball, golf, swimming, running, bowling, squash, and tennis.
