Know About Tendonitis and Your Risks with Regular Sports Physicals


Tendinitis is a medical concern in which the fibers that attach muscles to bones become irritated. This can occur anywhere in the body and some forms of the disorder have names associated with the body parts and movements that are affected, such as tennis elbow or swimmer’s shoulder.

Sometimes the condition is minor but at others times it requires surgical repair can be quite problematic. Learning about tendonitis is the best way to know if it’s time to get a sports physical to diagnose and treat your potential tendinitis.

Know the Risk Factors

The chances of developing tendinitis increase as you age and those who frequently perform repetitive motions at work or are exposed to vibrations are at an increased risk. Those who participate in sports and other vigorous activities are also at an increased risk for tendinitis and you should exercise caution if you’ve previously injured yourself.
