Tendinitis, also known as tendonitis, is a common orthopedic condition characterized by inflammation and irritation of a tendon, the thick fibrous cords that tether muscles to bones. This condition can cause pain, stiffness, and limited joint mobility, affecting your ability to perform everyday activities. Premier Orthopaedic Associates specializes in providing expert care and advanced treatments for tendinitis, helping you find relief and regain pain-free movement.

What is tendinitis?

Tendinitis can affect any tendon in the body, but it most commonly occurs in the tendons around the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and heels. The condition is often the result of overuse, repetitive motions, or sudden injuries. Tendinitis can occur in athletes, individuals with physically demanding jobs, or anyone who engages in activities that place stress on specific tendons.

Diagnosing tendinitis

An accurate diagnosis of tendinitis is crucial for effective treatment. Our experienced orthopedic specialists employ a thorough evaluation process, which includes a review of your medical history, a physical examination, and, in some cases, diagnostic imaging like X-rays or ultrasound to assess the affected tendon and rule out other conditions.

Treatments for tendinitis

At Premier Orthopaedic Associates, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments and therapies for tendinitis, tailored to the condition of the patient. Our approach includes:

Rest and activity modification

In many cases, tendinitis can be managed through rest, activity modification, and avoiding the repetitive movements or activities that exacerbate symptoms.

Physical therapy

Customized physical therapy programs are designed to strengthen the affected tendon and the surrounding muscles while improving range of motion and reducing pain.


Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroid injections may be prescribed to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation associated with tendinitis.

Bracing or splinting

Depending on the location and severity of tendinitis, orthotic braces or splints may be recommended to provide support and reduce strain on the affected tendon.

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP injections are an innovative regenerative treatment option that utilizes your body's natural healing properties to promote tissue repair and reduce pain and inflammation.

Minimally invasive procedures

In some cases, advanced techniques like percutaneous needle tenotomy or minimally invasive surgery may be considered to address severe or chronic tendinitis.
