Tendon inflammation is a painful condition. Tendons are in place all throughout your body. These thick bands connect your muscles to your bones. Once irritated these bands can become painful and inflamed which we call tendonitis.

Once a tendon is inflamed it can become swollen and make simple movements difficult. This can be especially hard when your feet and ankles are affected as you need them to move in order to walk.

What Causes Tendonitis

  • Overuse
  • Age
  • Underlying conditions
  • Medications

This condition is very common among athletes such as runners, golfers, tennis, and basketball. Repeated movements can cause the tendon to become inflamed and painful.

Our doctors have treatments that can reduce pain and inflammation and help you feel better faster. These treatment options are minimally invasive and do not require any downtime. Along with conservative care such as RICE (rest, ice, compression, and elevation), these treatments can give your tendons a total rejuvenation.

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine consists of effective and minimally invasive options. These treatments are used to create an optimal healing environment within your own body.

Platelet rich plasma uses plasma from your own blood to deliver a rich dose of healing agents to the injured or painful area. This method reduces pain and inflammation and allows your body to begin healing by sending blood and oxygen to the tendon.

Perinatal tissue is a highly concentrated solution of protein and growth factors that stimulate the healing process and allows your body to produce new healing blood vessels.
