Tendon Pain

Tendon Pain

Tendon pain can be a persistent and limiting condition, affecting various parts of the body and hindering daily activities. At Physio Hub, we specialize in the assessment and treatment of tendon pain, employing evidence-based practices to address the underlying causes and promote optimal tendon health.

Tendon pain can result from a variety of factors, and our approach involves a comprehensive examination to identify the specific tendon involved and the contributing factors:

Overuse and Repetitive Strain: Tendons can become strained and inflamed due to repetitive motions or overuse, often seen in athletes or individuals engaging in repetitive activities. Our team focuses on identifying the causative activities and implementing strategies to prevent further strain.

Trauma or Acute Injury: Tendon injuries can occur due to trauma, such as a sudden impact or force. We specialize in the assessment and management of acute tendon injuries, tailoring treatment plans to facilitate efficient healing.

Poor Biomechanics: Issues with biomechanics, including improper alignment or muscle imbalances, can contribute to tendon pain. Physio Hub employs targeted exercises and corrective interventions to address these biomechanical factors.

Tendonitis and Tendinopathy: Inflammation of the tendon (tendonitis) or degeneration of the tendon (tendinopathy) can lead to persistent pain. Our approach involves not only managing symptoms but also promoting tissue healing and strengthening through therapeutic exercises.

Age-Related Changes: Tendons undergo changes with age, becoming less elastic and more prone to injury. Our team considers age-related factors in the assessment and management of tendon pain, tailoring interventions to the individual's needs.

Tendon pain can be caused by conditions such as tendinitis, tendinopathy, or overuse injuries. If you experience persistent tendon pain, localized swelling, or discomfort during movement, it's advisable to consider physiotherapy. Seeking intervention early can help identify the specific tendon-related issue, address contributing factors, and initiate a targeted treatment plan.

Physiotherapy for tendon pain involves a comprehensive assessment to understand the factors contributing to the pain. Treatment may include specific exercises to promote tendon healing, stretches to improve flexibility, and manual therapy techniques to address soft tissue tightness. Additionally, your physiotherapist may provide guidance on modifications to activities that could aggravate the tendon. Each session is customized to your needs, aiming to reduce pain and promote optimal tendon health.

Yes, tendon pain can be influenced by biomechanical issues or improper movement patterns. Physiotherapy addresses these factors through a thorough biomechanical assessment. Treatment may involve corrective exercises, stretches, and techniques to improve movement patterns, reducing stress on the tendon and promoting healing.

Physiotherapy is not only for treating existing tendon pain but can also play a role in preventing future issues. Physiotherapists work with individuals to identify and address factors that contribute to tendon problems. This may include designing preventive exercise programs, providing education on proper biomechanics, and offering guidance on activity modifications to reduce the risk of future tendon injuries.
