Tendinitis (Tendinopathy)

Tendinitis is an overuse injury caused by repetitive activities or sports such as basketball and tennis, which produce significant load on the tendons of your body. Pain is usually experienced after activity has ceased and you have cooled down. If your suffering from tendinitis you’ll frequently

experience morning stiffness as well as pain and stiffness once you begin to move after a period of rest.

Commonly affected areas are in the achilles tendon, the patella tendon of the knee, the rotator cuff tendon of the shoulder and the main forearm extensor tendon on the outside of the elbow (also known as tennis elbow).

At Clyde Injury Clinic we provide strict exercise guidelines, preventative strategies and treatments to ensure adequate management and recovery. Dry needling can also be an effective course of treatment. In chronic cases we are the only clinic in the local and wider area to offer shockwave therapy, the breakthrough in the treatment of chronic tendinitis/tendinopathy.
