“Remain Active After The Age Of 31!” TENDONITIS & SPORTS

The tendons are what connect your muscles to the bones. Under normal circumstances, your tendons can handle a lot of work and force, but when they are over-worked, they become inflamed, causing you pain. Tendonitis can occur practically anywhere in the body but is most common in the hips, knees, wrists, elbows, and shoulders. The reason for this is quite simple: poor posture over a period of time. If you are at a computer or sitting for a good part of the day, your shoulders tend to slouch forward and your back muscles weaken. How’s Your Posture? Poor postureweakens your backmuscles, affecting your ability to do normal everyday tasks. Theweakenedmuscles and poor posture place an abnormal strain on the shoulders, elbows, knees, and hip tendons. Therefore, depending onwhere thegreatest strain is placed, youwillmost likely experience tendonitis. Tendonitis can be short-lived, but can also become chronic in nature and last for a long time. Chronic tendonitis actually disintegrates the quality of your

tendons over time and can lead to tearing. Most people experience tendonitis on a gradual basis. At first, it may be soreness, but if the irritation continues, it can become excruciating, affecting your ability to domany simple activities. Tendonitis can also come from injuries that strain the tendons. This can be from a direct blow like a fall or an overstretching injury in a sports activity. Treatment Tendonitis is very treatable with the right kind of physical therapy. Our specialists helped thousands of people with tendonitis get back to doing the things they love. Whether your problem is new or old, having a good understanding of the mechanics of your body and identifying the source of the problem leads to a quick recovery.

Patient Spotlight

“Now running to get back into basketball shape!”

“On July 31, 2017, I was unfortunate to tear my ACL and meniscus playing the sport that I love, basketball. I almost knew immediately that it was more than a strain or something time would heal. After surgery, I knew I needed to visit ProMotion PT again! I had torn my ACL on the other knee 3 years prior and the folks at ProMotion helped get me back on the hardwood. When I started this time around, I couldn’t walk, get into bed, tie my shoes or anything simple using my legs. I was very dependent on my wife and family for some time. But Sara and her team put their skills and experience to work on me for a second comeback. I gradually started walking, squatting to pick up my kids, and now running to get back into basketball shape. They have been a great staff providing flexibility, respect, and a display of their love for their profession. Thanks ProMotion! .” - Andrew
