Tendinitis is one of the most common types of injuries when it comes to athletes and work-related accidents. The condition can be extremely painful but is easy to treat if you allow the injured area to rest and limit the joint's movement. Chiropractic treatment may be just what you need to get on the road to recovery. Our chiropractor at Secrest Family Chiropractic in Scottsdale will uncover the cause of your tendinitis and provide multiple options to develop a personalized treatment program.
The Causes and Symptoms of Tendinitis
Tendinitis is a common condition that is the result of performing the same movement over and over again. It is often found in pitchers, tennis players, and golfers. It can also be related to your job if you are required to perform the same action repeatedly. If the condition isn't properly treated, it can become chronic resulting in years of pain, inflammation, and general discomfort.
Chiropractic Treatment Plans for Tendinitis
Each case of tendinitis is different. The treatment plan that is created for you will revolve around what caused the condition in the first place. In the beginning, treating the condition with R.I.C.E (rest, ice, compression, elevation) will normally be the first rule of thumb. You may be asked to limit certain movements to prevent making the injury worse. Deep tissue massage and physical therapy are excellent ways to strengthen the area and minimize inflammation. Our chiropractor will discuss your options and formulate a treatment plan that will help the healing process naturally and without medication.
