What is tendonitis, what causes tendonitis, and how is it treated in physcial therapy?

Tendonitis is used to describe inflammation, swelling, and irritation of a tendon. Tendonitis is a painful condition that is felt where the tendon attaches to the bone or along the length of a tendon near the point the muscle and tendon come together.

Tendons are fibrous bands of tissue that attach the muscle to the bone. Every muscle in the body has a tendon that attaches to the bone. When these structures are irritated, such as the tendons in the rotator cuff located in the shoulder, they can swell and become inflammed causing tendonitis in different areas of the body.

Tendonitis, the inflammation and swelling of a tendon due to irritation, can result from a variety of factor. Overuse of the tendon during sport activities or work activities are the most common causes for developing tendonitis. Repetitive and constant motions of specific body parts can begin to irritate the tendon and cause inflammation and swelling.
