Cape Coral Chiropractic for Tendinitis Is an Effective Treatment
Tendons are thick cords that attach muscle to bone. They exist in many areas of your body and are vital to the proper functioning of your joints. When they become inflamed, this is tendinitis. Tendinitis can occur in any tendon in your body, although it is more common in some than others. It usually occurs because of repetitive motion or overuse.
When a tendon becomes inflamed, the symptoms can quickly become limiting. They include pain, swelling, and a limited range of motion when using the affected joint because of the pain. Tendinitis in certain joints is known more commonly by a name affiliated with the person who most widely experiences it. If you know someone with runner’s knee or tennis elbow, they have tendinitis.
Tendinitis is a soft tissue injury, which often means chiropractic care is one of the best ways to address it. With chiropractic care and physiotherapy, we may be able to:
- Reduce swelling and stiffness in the joining
- Alleviate pain when in use
- Stop the burning, tingling, or other discomfort that affects the area
- Eliminate the restriction of movement
How Our Doctors Prescribe Cape Coral Tendinitis Treatment
Many patients report their symptoms to their general practitioner and are prescribed cortisone injections and anti-inflammatories. These drugs mask the pain and may make it easier to return to your activities, but they do nothing to address the underlying injury. Our team believes there is a better option.
When we perform chiropractic treatment for tendonitis in Cape Coral, FL, our goal is to heal and strengthen the tendon and prevent re-injury. We do this by prescribing chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy services to fully heal the injury and help the patient leave our care healthier than they were before their injury.
We understand that many patients cannot leave the job that caused their tendinitis or do not want to stop their hobbies or other activities. We believe it is possible to heal and rehabilitate in a way that makes it safe for most patients to return to all previous activities.
What Should I Expect When I Seek Chiropractic Treatment for Tendinitis?
The Specific Care Chiropractic team approaches each case individually. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan for tendon soreness and injuries. We assess each patient during their initial visit, including medical imaging such as X-rays. We take a complete health history and discuss their goals, what likely caused their injuries, and what they’ve already tried to alleviate the symptoms.
Our doctors prescribe a personalized treatment plan for each patient using the information we gather during the initial consultation. This happens during their initial visit, and treatment may begin the same day. This could include chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy exercises, or other treatments to help manage pain and inflammation.
As the patient continues with treatment, our doctors and therapists assess their progress. This allows our team to adjust their treatment plan as needed to ensure they are getting the maximum benefit out of each therapy.
Tendinitis Therapy Prescribed Treatments
Tendinitis can affect patients in so many different areas of their bodies that there is no standard treatment to prescribe. We must build a unique set of exercises and adjustments for each patient to ensure we best address their needs. Our goals are to heal the tendon, rehabilitate the body, and improve the patient’s strength and flexibility so they are healthier than they were before the injury.
Some of the treatments and services you may receive if you undergo tendinitis therapy at our Cape Coral office include:
If your pain and swelling are in your neck or back, we might prescribe spinal manipulation. For most patients with tendinitis, though, the pain is elsewhere in the body. This leads us to use extremity manipulation to address it. Extremity manipulation consists of specific adjustments that our chiropractors can use to relieve pressure and pain in your arms, legs, shoulders, hips, elbows, and other areas.
Corrective care is essential for those with tendinitis. These injuries often flare up during therapy, and you may require additional adjustments to relieve additional pressure and pain.
Strength and stretching exercises are essential to recovering fully from tendinitis. Our therapists will teach you exercises to help you improve flexibility, regain strength, and move in the safest ways for your body. Your therapist will create an exercise program that will include in-office work during your sessions and exercises to complete at home. Physical therapy will help you reduce the risk of re-injury.
We use several additional therapies to help our patients manage pain, reduce swelling, and improve circulation to the affected area. This could include ultrasound therapy, massage therapy, electrical stimulation (E-STIM) therapy, and more. These are often good alternatives to pain-relieving drugs.
We also provide a number of other chiropractic and physical therapy treatments based on the individual patient’s needs. During your initial consultation, our doctor will answer your questions and determine how we can best meet your needs.
