If you have pain in your knee, arm, shoulder or heel, you might have tendonitis. This particular inflammation causes pain and discomfort around the joint. However, at the Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic, our chiropractor offers tendonitis treatment in Murfreesboro that's effective and noninvasive.
Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons yet flexible, bands of tissue that connect the bones and muscles. Generally, tendonitis affects areas of the body such as the wrists, shoulders, knees, elbows, calves or heels. Sometimes, the tendons become inflamed or irritated. You might even suffer from a microscopic tear in the tendon.
The condition may come from overuse as a result of using the same area. Although it's rare, an infection such as gonorrhea can cause tendonitis.
The most common symptom of tendonitis is pain around the joint. The pain will tend to worsen after you use the tendon and you might notice weakening in the area. The affected tendon may be noticeably red or swollen and warm to the touch.
We offer a wide variety of chiropractic treatment in Murfreesboro, TN. Our chiropractors may suggest exercise therapy to help relieve pain and reverse any loss of range of motion in the region. Exercise therapy is guided by our very own chiropractor and consists of different movement and stretches focusing on the injured area. These exercises stimulate blood flow to the area to reduce pain and discomfort and send nutrients to the area to heal. In turn, these exercise movements may assist in restoring range of motion and strength.
Nutritional counseling is another treatment we use to help in the healing process. This particular treatment consists of our chiropractor recommending diet changes to make that will promote healing. Our chiropractor may prescribe supplements to aid in the process as well.
We offer interferential electrical muscle stimulation, which helps reduce pain and discomfort. The treatment provides frequencies to the muscles and other soft tissues. We might use ultrasound therapy on the area, which is comprised of our chiropractor using sound waves to stimulate the soft tissue and ease your discomfort. The warm heat treatment, diathermy, may be used to heat the soft tissue, so you're able to move more comfortably. Our chiropractor may use moist heat therapy and cryotherapy to reduce inflammation alleviating pain and promote healing.
