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.

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.
