The tissue that attaches muscles to a bone is called a tendon. Tendonitis is an inflammation of a tendon or the muscles around a tendon.
Tendonitis can occur for many reasons including injury or repetitive activities (over use). Symptoms include pain, tenderness or swelling.
In many cases tendonitis will get better on its own. Stopping the activity or movement that is causing the condition and icing the area often relieve the symptoms. Over the counter pain killers such as paracetamol can also help.
In more stubborn cases you may need physiotherapy or steroid injections. In rare cases surgery to repair a damaged tendon is needed.
