Tendonitis is inflammation, irritation, and swelling of a tendon, which is the fibrous structure that joins muscle to bone

General description of Tendonitis

Tendonitis usually occurs in individuals in middle or old age because it is often the result of overuse over a long period of time. Tendonitis does occur in younger patients as a result of acute overuse.

Tendons that commonly become inflamed include:

  • Tendons of the hand
  • Tendons of the upper arm that effect the shoulder
  • Achilles tendon and the tendon that runs across the top of the foot.
