Tendonitis (tendinitis) is a condition where the tendons that attach muscles to bone become irritated. It is a painful injury that does not usually have numbness or tingling associated with it.

When a person suffers from tendonitis, pain is usually felt when the joints are moved. The painful symptoms of tendonitis develop due to unnecessary strain passing from the muscles through the tendons to their bony attachments.

When you understand the interesting relationship of the muscles to the bones they attach to, you can begin to see how anatomy affects how tendonitis develops and how it is related to movement.

Appropriate self care requires a consistent stretching program, identification and elimination of the habits that add to strain and careful attention to correct body mechanics, adequate hydration and elimination of other irritants that affect the tendons of the wrists and elbows.
