Tendinitis (also called tendonitis) is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon, a thick cord that attaches bone to muscle.


Tendinitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the affected area, or from a sudden more serious injury.

Incorrect posture at work or home or poor stretching or conditioning before exercise or playing sports also increases a person’s risk.


Pain at the site of the tendon and surrounding area. Pain may gradually build up or be sudden and severe, especially if calcium deposits are present.


Tendinitis is typically treated with Custom Digital Orthotics or Cold Laser Therapy for Pain and Peripheral Nephropathy.
