Many people suffer from conditions known as Tendinitis (acute presentation), Tendinosis and Tendinopathies (chronic overuse presentation).  These conditions often involve the overuse of muscles and tendons that result in an irritation of the tendons.  Often these are repetitive strain injuries where the muscles and tendons continue to be irritated they can become chronic.  Many of these conditions can resolve within weeks to months if treated and managed appropriately.  In some cases though, they can persist for months on end.

Treatment and management usually involves a combination of pain management, manual therapy, exercise prescription (strength and conditioning), modification to ergonomics and in some cases referral.  At Principle Four Osteopathy we also have Shockwave Unit which we commonly use as an adjunct for the treatment of tendon complaints.  You can read more about shockwave therapy by clicking here.
