What Is Tendinitis?
At Advanced Family Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we take care of a variety of healthcare needs. We stress preventative care, as we know that it is more cost-effective and can help people stay out of the operating room. However, we also know that acute care needs might arise from time to time. When this happens, it is important to have a chiropractor who knows how to address them. At Advanced Family Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, one of the most common acute care needs that we see is tendinitis. There are a few important points that everyone should keep in mind.
What Is Tendinitis?
This condition is caused by inflammation in the tissues that connect muscles to bones, known as tendons. As a result, tendonitis can develop almost anywhere in the body. There are tendons on nearly every bony surface. When someone suffers from this condition, he or she might notice pain that develops when the muscle is used. This pain typically gets worse with movement. This can also make someone feel weak in the affected area. For this reason, it is important to seek the care of a trained chiropractor.
How Can a Chiropractor Treat Tendinitis?
When you come to see us for tendonitis treatment at Advanced Family Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, there are a few treatment options that we can provide. We will want to do a complete physical exam to see just how painful your tendinitis is. We will also test the range of motion of the affected limb. Finally, we also want to hear about other treatment options that have been employed.
The goal of our treatment plan is to reduce the amount of inflammation in the injured tendon. To that end, we have a number of options. We can use chiropractic adjustments to ensure proper bodily and spinal alignment. We can also use massage therapy and corrective exercises to reduce inflammation. Trust us to help you!
