Tendinitis is a painful allocation to the tendon that is often accompanied by inflammation caused by repetitive movements and/or bad postures. In the family of tendinitis are tendinitis (with inflammation of the tendon), tendinopathy (simple pain of the tendon without inflammation) and tenosynovitis (inflammation of the synovial sheath – the envelope covering the tendon). The latter mainly affect the following tendons:
• Wrist and thumb
• elbow, more commonly known as tennis elbow or epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow)
• from the shoulder, at the rotator cuff or brachial biceps
• Achilles tendon
• knee (iliotibial band, crow’s feet or quadriceps)
Kiné Pro Sport therapists can help you stop your pain. A good assesment of mobility, followed by specific tests will help us observe your maximum range of motion and to see compensations. Specific mobilization techniques as well as manual techniques will be able to relieve and relax muscle compensation. Transverse and deep massage techniques will be performed to restore and maintain normal tissue elasticity and mobility. This technique can treat a specific and localized area by acting on the anatomical structure that suffers from post-traumatic inflammation or adhesions. Thereafter, your therapist will give you recommendations as well as rehabilitation and postural exercises that will properly stimulate the tendons so that they are no longer irritated during daily efforts.
Do not hesitate to consult our therapists and/or communicate with our team if you have additional questions, we will be happy to guide you
