Tendinitis

Tendons are thick fibrous cords that attach muscles to bone. Tendinitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon as a result of overuse or strain on a joint, often from sporting injuries. The condition causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint.

Tendinitis most commonly affects your shoulders, elbows, wrists, thumbs, knees and heels which can all be treated with a unique and pioneering form of PRP therapy, called ACP Tendo, at The OrthoBiologics Clinic.

    We treat the following types of tendon injuries:

    • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
    • Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)
    • Jumper’s knee (patellar tendinitis)
    • Runner's heel (Achilles tendinitis)
    • Swimmer's shoulder (rotator cuff tendinitis)
    • Plantar fasciitis
    • Hamstring tendinitis
    • Adductor tendinitis
    • Gluteal tendinitis

    If tendon irritation persists for several weeks or months degenerative changes occur in the tendon further exacerbating the pain. Without proper treatment, tendinitis can increase the risk of the tendon rupturing which, subsequently, may require surgery.

    Treatment options for tendinitis include:

    Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy – this injection therapy has been scientifically proven to significantly reduce pain associated with tendinitis and promote natural healing of soft tissues

    Steroid injections – only provide short-term pain relief and long term use can lead to further damaging the mechanical structure of the tendon

    Surgery – to remove damaged tissue or repair a ruptured tendon
