Treatment of Tendonitis and other Tendon Injuries in Southern California
Treating tendon injuries
The tendons are special tissues that connect a bone to its muscles. When tendons are put under repetitive stress, tendon injuries can be the result. An example could be “tennis elbow,” bicep tendonitis, or swimmer’s shoulder.
Or, perhaps there is a direct injury, such as tendon tears. In either case, the tendons may become inflamed or begin to break down. This can lead to pain and limited mobility in the affected area.
Tendonitis can affect nearly any tendon in the body, including the knees, elbow, hips and shoulder.

Tendonitis Q & A
What are the symptoms of tendonitis?
You may have tendonitis if you experience sudden and severe pain near a tendon caused by an injury. Tendonitis may often cause gradual pain that worsens over time – perhaps due to repetitive motions. Tendonitis in the shoulder may cause a loss of motion, which is also referred to as a “frozen shoulder.”
What should I do if I suspect I have tendonitis?
If you think you may have developed tendonitis, administer immediate treatment using the acronym, ‘RICE’, which stands for rest, ice, compression and elevation. Then, contact your podiatrist to schedule an appointment.
