Tendinitis

Although tendinitis can be caused by a sudden injury, the condition is much more likely to stem from the repetition of a particular movement over time. Most people develop tendinitis because their jobs or hobbies involve repetitive motions, which put stress on the tendons needed to perform the tasks.

TENDINITIS

Symptoms and Signs

Tendinitis causes people to have pain, stiffness, swelling, tenderness, and weakness. If tendinitis complicates then it results in infection(fever, redness, warmth, swelling) or if the area connot be moved, appears deformed, or could be broken

Causes

Tendinitis is inflammation of a tendon, most commonly from overuse but also from infection or rheumatic disease.

What is it?

Preventionsof Tendinitis are 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.The quicker your tendonitis is treated, the sooner you'll recover full strength and flexibility. Your doctor first may recommend that you apply ice packs to the painful area for 20-minute periods, three or four times a day. You also should ice the area immediately after any activity that aggravates your pain (such as tennis or running).
