Chiropractic Treatment for Tendonitis

Tendonitis is a painful condition that happens when overexertion affects a tendon where the bone and muscle are connected. It can happen in several different ways including during sports and physical activities. Inflammation, swelling, soreness, and pain are associated with this condition. 


The soft tissue around the tendon may become affected as well. Elbow pain and knee pain are also to be expected with this condition. This can lead to less mobility which can negatively impact the quality of your life. Chiropractic treatment can help with tendonitis pain relief without using pain medication or surgery.

How We Treat Tendonitis

At Advanced Chiropractic in Klamath Falls, we practice a "whole body" approach to wellness by employing different modalities of treatment that are tailored to your specific needs. Tendonitis may be treated in different ways depending on each individual and some modalities may be incorporated as part of the overall wellness plan. In addition to chiropractic services, we incorporate different healing modalities that are specific to your health conditions. A full assessment of injuries is needed to determine a treatment plan. We offer a variety of methods that include the following:

  • Massage therapy for aiding healing and recovery
  • Traditional inflammation reduction techniques including ice, rest, electrical muscle stimulation 
  • Non-invasive spinal decompression instead of surgical procedures
  • Personalized plans for work-related injuries
  • Physiotherapy and rehabilitation exercises

The Causes and Symptoms of Tendonitis

Often, overexertion, pulling muscles, and injuries are the most common causes of tendonitis. Active people who play sports or perform repetitive motions are at more risk for developing this type of condition. It can manifest as painful swelling and inflammation with elbow pain or knee pain that can recur if it is not allowed to heal properly. Overworked muscles need to recover after being exerted. People may push beyond the limits of natural muscle recovery and it can cause tendonitis.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Tendonitis

At the start of treatment, after a thorough assessment, we can determine if inflammation reduction is necessary before chiropractic joint manipulation begins. It is necessary to reduce any inflammation sufficiently to avoid further injury. Treatment can incorporate different modalities such as massage once the inflammation is at an acceptable level. Deeper chiropractic treatments will ease joint pressure, reduce pain, and provide greater mobility to assist in the healing process.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I've been going to Dr. Yewchuck for many years. He's always been able to get my stubborn neck and back aligned every time when other Chiropractors can't. I would trust Dr. James any time when it comes to my Chiropractic needs. He adjusted my neck 2 days after having surgery and was very careful getting me on and off the adjustment table. I now live in the Rogue Valley and anytime I'm in Klamath Falls and need an adjustment his office staff always gets me in within minutes of going to the office. Dr. James and his staff are very professional and caring about your individual needs. Can't wait to use his new equipment! I would recommend Advance Chiropractor to anyone."

  • "I don't know where I'd be if it hadn't been for James and his staff.....After a fatal MVA, he was able to find the injuries that neither the ER nor our doctor could at the time. He efficiently and effectively planned a course of action that got me back on the path of recovery. He's compassionate...he has knowledgeable, professional, and friendly staff. I'm proud to know him and the gals in his office.... He can certainly help you...I have no doubts about that."
