Tendinitis

Tendinitis

Tendinitis is the severe swelling of a tendon that causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint. If untreated, the condition can easily result in a tendon rupture, a much more serious condition that requires surgical repair. An established healthcare center in Brooklyn, NY, HealthQuest provides customized treatment options to treat tendinitis, thus helping to reduce the pain and swelling associated with the disorder.

Inflammation of the Tendon

The common types of tendonitis we treat include Tennis elbow, Achilles tendinitis, and Swimmer’s shoulder. Risk factors for tendinitis include age, poorly placed bone or joint that stresses soft-tissue structures, stresses from conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout or psoriatic arthritis. Symptoms include pain in the site of the tendon and surrounding area, tenderness and mild swelling, which can affect your day-to-day activities.

Tendinitis Treatment

The first step in treating the condition is to identify the cause. Skilled physicians at our pain management center diagnose the condition taking into account your medical history and by performing a thorough physical exam. X-rays, MRI or Ultrasound may be used to find the actual cause.

Our Treatment Approaches

  • Heat/cold applications
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAIDS)
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic care
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Exercise programs

Our physicians also provide cold and compression therapy using Game Ready system. With flexible knee wraps, this system allows the cold to penetrate deeply into the joint. This helps to alleviate pain and restore the injured area to normal function.
