SOME MEDICAL FACTS

Description of Tendonitis

Tendons are bands of strong connective tissue that attach muscle to bone. Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon. The symptoms include pain and swelling. Tendonitis is usually a type of overuse injury; the tendon is repeatedly strained until tiny tears form. Sites that are prone to tendonitis include the shoulder, wrist, knee, shin and heel. In many cases of tendonitis will settle spontaneously.  Extended rest of the area is advised. 

Heel tendonitis is the most difficult to settle because of the necessity of use.  A custom made Orthotic will realign the foot and take the strain off of the tendon via the inbuilt spring system.  This system does the majority of the work the tendon normally carries out.

Cause:

Some of the common causes of tendonitis can include:

  • Overuse of the tendons by repetitive actions.
  • Calcium deposit along the tendon at the site of insertion.
  • Bone spurs on the heels.
  • Any sporting activity that requires lots of jumping and running.
  • Running on hard surfaces.
  • Poor sporting technique, such as holding a tennis racquet or golf club incorrectly.
  • Inappropriate sporting equipment, such as a tennis racquet that’s too heavy.
  • Lifting weights that are too heavy.
  • Lifting heavy weights without warming up properly.
  • Neglecting to warm up properly prior to sport or exercise.
  • Extreme and regular physical effort, such as an intensive sports training schedule.
  • Not taking enough time between training sessions to allow full recovery.
  • Exercising in cold temperatures.
  • Awkward positions that are maintained for a long time.
  • Being obese, which puts excessive pressure on the tendons of the legs.
 

Symptoms:

The symptoms of tendonitis can include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness and restricted mobility at the affected joint
  • Muscle weakness
  • The skin over the affected area may feel warm to the touch.

The symptoms of tendonitis can be similar to those of other conditions, such as arthritis or infection, so it is important to seek medical advice if your symptoms don’t improve despite home care.

Diagnosis:

Tendinitis, also called overuse tendinopathy, typically is diagnosed by a physical exam alone. If you have the symptoms of overuse tendinopathy, your doctor may order an ultrasound or MRI scans to help determine tendon thickening, dislocations and tears, but these are usually unnecessary for newly diagnosed cases. Your doctor can also assess whether you have similar problems such as bursitis (inflammation of the fluid “cushion” surrounding the joints).

Pathophysiology:

Tendons transmit the forces of muscle to the skeleton. As such, they are subjected to repeated mechanical loads, which are felt to be a major causative factor in the development of tendinopathy. Pathologic findings include tendon inflammation, mucoid degeneration, and fibrinoid necrosis in tendons. Microtearing and proliferation of fibroblasts have also been reported. However, the exact pathogenesis of tendinopathy is unclear.

OPTION TWO

Corticosteroid or Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy, also called proliferation therapy is an injection-based treatment used in chronic musculoskeletal conditions. It has been characterised as an alternative medicine practice.

Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy), also know as Non-Surgical Ligament and Tendon Reconstruction and Regenerative Joint Injection, is a recognized orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s healing processes to strengthen and repair injured and painful joints and connective tissue. It is based on the fact that when ligaments or tendons (connective tissue) are stretched or torn, the joint they are holding destabilizes and can become painful. Prolotherapy, with its unique ability to directly address the cause of the instability, can repair the weakened sites and produce new collagen tissue, resulting in permanent stabilization of the joint. Once the joint is stabilized, pain usually resolves. Traditional approaches with surgery have more risk and may fail to stabilize the joint and relieve pain, and anti-inflammatory or other pain relievers only act temporarily. The original term used for this therapy was “sclerotherapy”, coined in the 1930’s when this treatment was discovered, and included both joint and vein injections. Today the term “prolotherapy” is used for joint, ligament and tendon injections, while “sclerotherapy” is used for the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, hemorrhoids and other vascular abnormalities.

OPTION THREE

Ultrasound Therapy

While ultrasound therapy is a great treatment method to relieve heel pain, it is not a permanent solution. Regular treatments are often necessary to prevent the heel pain from reappearing. For many people, ultrasound therapy is an effective form of treatment for heel pain. It sends sound waves to the injured, painful area. These waves move at a frequency of one million vibrations per second. They can penetrate over 2 inches into the body providing the targeted relief you are looking for.

Main Disadvantage

While ultrasound therapy is a great treatment method to relieve heel pain, it is not a permanent solution. Regular treatments are often necessary to prevent the heel pain from reappearing.

OPTION FOUR

Invasive Surgery
Surgery: “Not Recommended”

In severe cases of Tendonitis, surgery may be needed to repair the tendon.

Surgery is very a unusual option for Tendonitis and if suggested by any doctor a second opinion would be advisable.  Tendonitis can generally be relieved using an Orthotic to adjust the stance and walking gait.
