TENDONITIS
What Is It?
Tendons are tough, flexible, fibrous bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones. When tendons become inflamed, irritated or suffer microscopic tears, the condition is called tendonitis. Tendons can be small, like the delicate, tiny bands in the hands, or large, like the heavy, ropelike cords that anchor the calf or thigh muscles. In most cases, the cause of tendonitis is unknown; when a cause can be identified, the condition usually happens for one of two reasons:

Overuse – A particular body motion is repeated too often.
Overload – The level of a certain activity, such as weightlifting, is increased too quickly.

Symptoms
In general, tendonitis causes pain in the tissues surrounding a joint, especially after the joint is used too much during play or work. In some cases, the joint may feel weak, and the area may be red, swollen and warm to the touch.

Prevention
In many cases, tendonitis can be avoided by taking a few simple precautions. Some helpful strategies include:

  • Always warm up before beginning strenuous exercise.
  • If you want to intensify your exercise level, do it gradually.
  • Be careful about the “no pain, no gain” approach. It can be difficult to distinguish between an ache that indicates you’re building strength and an ache that means you injured a tendon.
  • Avoid activities that require prolonged periods of reaching over your head, such as painting the ceiling. If you must do this kind of work, take frequent breaks.
  • Wear shoes that fit properly, especially if you participate in a sport that requires a lot of running, such as track, cross-country or basketball.
  • If you are active in organized sports or exercise regularly, pay attention to your technique. Ask your coach or trainer for guidance. If you’re having exercise-related tendonitis, a doctor who specializes in sports medicine may be helpful as well.
  • For people with medial or lateral epicondylitis related to racquet sports, changing to a racquet with a larger head may help to prevent re-injury, as long as the new racquet is not heavier than the original. Some specialists believe that this type of racquet cuts down on the transmission of vibrations to the arm.
