Tendonitis And Tendinitis Hand Physiotherapy Singapore
For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp xx
We often see patients with tendonitis (also known as tendinitis, used
interchangeably), with soreness and pain to a specific muscle or joint
in their bodies. It is a type of tendinopathy which is often confused
with the more commonly diagnosed tendinosis which has similar symptoms
but differently treated.
It refers to tendon
injuries that involves a relatively more massive-scale injury that
usually comes with inflammation. An example is the Achilles tendinitis, which of course, affects the achilles tendon, or the patellar tendonitis (also known as jumper's knee, that affects the patellar tendon).
Common injuries that occurs
of our patients complains of injuries in the upper and lower limbs (the
extremities) more than the body and hips. Thing is it depends on each
individuals how severe and the number of injuries that they have, the
type of games or sports they play, how intense or long they play etc. An
example is soccer fans and players tend to develop tendonitis in their
achilles tendons, rock climbers will develop them in their fingers,
wrists and elbows.
How We Diagnose Them
our physiotherapy assessments and treatments, we watch for a varying
range of symptoms - aches, pains, localized stiffness, even to a burning
sensation when the tendon(s) are inflammed. Patients often complain of
pain that is worsened after a strenuous activity, and the affected joint
and tendon usually ends up stiffer the next day as the muscles spasms
and tightens up. One thing to note also is that we observed that
patients reported stressful moments and situations in their lives which
precedes the symptoms.
of the treatments that we provide is very conservative. We will
complement the medical professionals side of pharmaceutics, who often
provide NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) by providing active exercise therapy, gentle clinical massage therapy, edema management, pain management, in between icing therapy and resting.
during the acute stages of inflammation, pain and swelling needs to
rest more first, any unnecessary extra movements that is forced will
also serve to aggravate the inflammation, causing more pain, and more
stiffness. Most of our patients recover within 2-3 days for the initial
recovery, and take about 4-6 weeks for a complete recovery.
Some of our patients, though, even after recovering, requests and continues to come back for our clinical massage therapy intermittently to rest their muscles.
