What Is Tendonitis?

Tendonitis, also known as tendinitis, is the inflammation or irritation of a tendon, the thick fibrous cords that attach muscles to bones. This condition often results from repetitive movements, overuse, or strain on the tendon. Common symptoms include pain, swelling, and tenderness in the affected area. Tendonitis can occur in various parts of the body, such as the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, or heels. Rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications are typical treatments, although severe cases may require physical therapy or other medical interventions.
