WHAT IS TENDONITIS?
Tendonitis is a medical term used to describe irritation and inflammation to a tendon. A tendon is a structure that connects a muscle to a bone in the body. With overuse, improper use, or in a situation where a muscle is stretched beyond its proper limits, tendonitis can occur and pain will occur as a result. Continued abuse to this tendon can result in scar tissue formation within it. Scar tissue can cause pain and decrease your range of motion.

HOW CAN Ideal body chiropractic HELP YOU WITH TENDONITIS?
Imagine yourself during happy hour at a golf range where a bucket of balls are half off! You have to stop a halfway through your bucket because the pain on the inside of your elbow has become unbearable. Does this sound familiar to you? You are most likely suffering from golfer’s elbow or medial epicondylitis, a common form of tendonitis from overuse of the forearm muscles on the inside of your elbow. An abnormally placed bone or joint can stress your tendons. A gentle chiropractic adjustment rendered by one of our doctors can properly realign your bones and joints, decreasing the stress on your tendons and relieving your pain. Our doctors can also lessen the pain by administering Active Release Soft tissue massage. This will ease tight muscles to get you back to the golf range before you know it! But relieving the pain is only one part of the treatment, preventing the pain from coming back is next. Our doctors can analyze your movement patterns and give you tips on how to move properly so that you can stay in the game longer and optimize your athletic performance!
