What is tendonitis and how does it manifest itself?

Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons, the fibrous structures that connect muscles to bones. It can occur as a result of repeated overload, incorrect movement or direct trauma. The most common symptoms of tendonitis include pain on mobilization, localized swelling and a sensation of warmth around the affected area. Pain can also occur at rest in more advanced cases.

What are the main causes of tendonitis?

The main causes of tendonitis include repeated and excessive use of the affected tendon, repetitive movements in work or sport, poor posture during daily activities or sports, and aging, which can make tendons less elastic and more susceptible to injury.

How is tendonitis diagnosed?

The diagnosis of tendonitis is mainly clinical, made by a doctor on the basis of medical history and physical examination. Additional tests such as ultrasound or MRI may be necessary to confirm tendon inflammation and rule out other conditions such as tendon rupture or joint problems.

What treatments are recommended for tendonitis?

Treatment for tendonitis aims to reduce pain and inflammation and promote tendon healing. This may include:

  • Rest: avoid activities that strain the tendon.
  • Ice application: to reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs: such as ibuprofen, to reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Physiotherapy: to strengthen surrounding muscles and improve flexibility.
  • Injections: of corticosteroids or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be considered in certain cases.

What can be done to prevent tendonitis?

To prevent tendonitis, it is advisable to adopt good posture at work and during sporting activities, warm up appropriately before practicing a sport, diversify movements to avoid overloading the same tendon, and strengthen muscles to support the tendons concerned.

Can tendonitis recur?

Yes, tendonitis can recur, especially if the initial triggers are not properly addressed. Appropriate rehabilitation, good ergonomic practices and regular professional monitoring can help minimize the risk of recurrence.

How does tendonitis affect different parts of the body?

Tendonitis can affect several areas of the body, each with its own particularities:

  • Shoulder (rotator cuff tendonitis): often due to repetitive overhead arm movements.
  • Elbow (epicondylitis, often called tennis elbow): common in tennis players and those who perform twisting movements of the wrist.
  • Wrist (De Quervain's tenosynovitis): generally caused by overuse of the wrist, often seen in young mothers and people who frequently use mobile devices.
  • Knee (patellar tendonitis): common in runners and jumpers, often called jumper's knee.
  • Ankle (Achilles tendonitis): particularly common in runners and can be exacerbated by inappropriate footwear or misalignment of the foot.

Are there effective natural treatments for tendonitis?

Yes, there are several natural treatments to relieve tendonitis:

  • Ice application: to reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
  • Rest: essential to allow the tendon to heal.
  • Compression and elevation: to reduce swelling.
  • Massages: to improve circulation and help relax tense muscles.
  • Supplements: such as curcumin (a natural anti-inflammatory) and glucosamine, which can help reduce inflammation and promote healing.

What role does nutrition play in the prevention and treatment of tendonitis?

Good nutrition can play a crucial role in the prevention and treatment of tendonitis. Foods rich in vitamins C and E, omega-3 and antioxidants can help reduce inflammation. It's also important to maintain adequate hydration to ensure healthy tendons. Avoiding refined sugars and saturated fats can also help reduce overall inflammation in the body.

When should a healthcare professional be consulted about tendonitis?

It is advisable to consult a healthcare professional if :

  • Pain persists despite rest and first-line treatment.
  • Pain worsens or is accompanied by redness, heat or significant swelling.
  • Mobility of the affected area is limited, hindering daily activities.
  • Signs of tendon tearing (such as a sudden inability to move a joint) are suspected.

Is tendonitis linked to specific medical conditions or medications?

Yes, tendonitis can be associated with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, hormonal imbalances or rheumatic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. What's more, certain medications, especially certain types of antibiotics such as fluoroquinolones, are known to increase the risk of tendonitis and even tendon rupture. It's important to discuss the potential side effects of medications with a healthcare professional.
