Tendinitis & Bursitis
What is Tendinitis and Bursitis?
Tendinitis is the inflammation or irritation of a tendon, which is a thick cord that attaches bone to muscle. Often caused by repetitive minor impact on the affected area. Simple activities such as gardening, carpentry, shoveling, and painting can cause tendinitis. Risk factors also include stressors from other conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and thyroid disorders.
Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation of the bursa, a sac filled with lubricating fluid between tissues such as bone, muscle, tendons, and skin, that decreases rubbing, friction, and irritation.
What are the Symptoms of Tendinitis and Bursitis?
Common symptoms of tendinitis and bursitis include:
- Lumps forming along the tendon
- Pain often described as a dull ache
- Crackling feeling in the tendon as it moves
- Affected areas may feel hot and red
