What is tendonitis?

Tendons are strong cords of tissue that connect muscles to bones. Tendonitis happens when a tendon is inflamed, causing swelling, pain and discomfort.

Tendonitis treatment

Tendonitis can be caused by strain, overuse, injuries or too much exercise. Your physician on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White Health will work with you to determine what caused your tendonitis and create a tendonitis treatment plan.

Treatment plans for patients will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of tendonitis and personal preferences. Tendonitis treatment options may include:

  • Medicación
  • Surgery
    • Joint aspiration
  • Rest
