What is tendinitis?

Tendinitis is a condition that develops when a tendon (the fibrous tissue connecting muscles to bones) becomes irritated or inflamed, usually as a result of repetitive motion. It can affect any of the tendons in the body, but is most often seen in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, thumbs, hips, knees, and heels. When tendinitis affects the shoulder, it might be referred to as “pitcher’s shoulder” or “swimmer’s shoulder,” and when it affects the elbow, it’s sometimes called “golfer’s elbow” or “tennis elbow.”

What are the symptoms of tendinitis?

One of the most common symptoms of tendinitis is a dull, aching pain that tends to be exacerbated when the affected area of the body is moved. Other symptoms include:

  • Crackling or grating sensations
  • Heat
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness

How is tendinitis treated?

Many individuals can treat the symptoms of tendinitis by resting, icing the affected area, and taking pain medication. In more severe cases, however, a physician’s help may be needed to find relief. It’s important to seek prompt, proper treatment for tendinitis, since failing to do so could increase the chances of developing tendinosis or sustaining a tendon rupture, which could require surgery.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"

I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life.

"Dr. Jones and his staff through the surgical procedures and other methods they have performed over the years have enhanced my daily living experience dramatically.
