Tendinitis, an inflammation or irritation that reduces a tendon’s ability to glide smoothly, may be a normal part of growing older, the result of wear and tear or overly strenuous exercise. The goal of treatment will be to reduce your pain and inflammation, usually through medication and therapy, and in rare instances, surgery.


Depending on the location of your tendinitis, we may begin your treatment with pain medication and physical therapy to help you regain strength in the area. If your case is severe or the tendon breaks, we may perform surgery to repair the damage. If necessary, our expert orthopedic surgeons can realign the tendon or remove spurs or calcium buildup creating pressure on the area.
