Those who are highly active or place excess stress on their joints, such as athletes, are at a heightened risk for achy joints and a painful inflammatory condition known as tendonitis.
Commonly mistaken for arthritis, tendonitis can occur due to repetitive movements, injury, or other related conditions, such as tennis elbow. Bones, tendons, and the cartilage around them become injured or worn out over time. As a result, athletes and active individuals who develop tendonitis may experience localized pain, redness, swelling, tenderness, and warmth in the affected area.
Once tendonitis is diagnosed by a qualified sports medicine doctor, recommended treatment to reduce the joint pain and inflammation may include:
- Physical therapy to help restore strength and function
- Prolozone injections
- Shockwave Therapy
- High-Intensity Laser Therapy
- Chiropractic and physical therapy to reduce biomechanical stress and strengthen muscles surrounding the affected joint
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
