Tendonitis is a inflammation of a tendon (tendonitis) and the lining
of the tendon sheath (tenosynovitis), usually occurring simultaneously.
The condition, which causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint, is most common around your shoulders, elbows and knees. But it can also occur in your hips and wrists.

Tennis elbow, also called lateral epicondylitis, is a common cause of elbow pain.

Complications

Tendonitis may become chronic or long-term and can lead to the rupture of a tendon. Tendonitis can also cause permanent damage to the tissue that makes up your tendons.

Sometimes the discomfort of tendonitis disappears within a matter of weeks, especially if you rest the involved joint. In elderly people and those who continue to use the affected area, tendonitis often heals more slowly and is more likely to progress to a chronic condition termed tendonosis. This condition often involves a change in the structure of the tendon to a weaker, more fibrous tissue.

Treatment

The goals of tendonitis treatment are to relieve your pain and reduce inflammation. Often, simple home treatment — which includes rest, ice and over-the-counter pain relievers — is all that you need.

Other treatments for tendonitis include:

  • Injected steroids. Sometimes your doctor may inject a steroid drug into tissue around a tendon to relieve tendonitis. Injections of cortisone reduce inflammation and can help ease pain. However, there are potential side effects. For example, repeated injections may weaken a tendon , increasing your risk of rupturing the tendon.

  • Strengthening exercises. People with tendonitis and tendonosis may also benefit from a program of specific exercise designed to strengthen the force-absorbing capability of the muscle-tendon unit.

  • Surgery. When a tendon is torn, you may need a reconstructive operation to clean inflamed tissue out of the tendon sheath or to relieve pressure on the tendon by removing bone. Surgeons can repair tendon tears to reduce pain, restore function and, in some cases, prevent tendon rupture.
