Osteopathy for Tendonitis Treatment
Tendonitis – inflammation of a tendon – is often treated with osteopathy.
Tendons are the bands of strong connective tissue that attach muscle to bone. Tendonitis is a common so-called “repetitive strain injury” that results from overuse of a tendon. The repeated straining of a tendon causes small tears, which lead to inflammation.
Osteopathy focuses on the musculoskeletal system – the nerves, muscles, and bones that form the structure of the body – and combines conventional medical practices with specific osteopathic techniques. For this reason, osteopathy is particularly well-suited for the treatment of tendonitis.
