Synergy Therapeutic: It Could be Tendonitis

Health &Wellness The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body


“Suffering With Hip, Knee, Elbow Or Shoulder Pain?” IT COULD BE TENDONITIS

Do you find yourself doing normal everyday tasks like taking milk out of the fridge, lifting something overhead, bending or simply walking a distance, but experience pain with them? Something is not right and having pain with movement, especially if it goes on for more than a few days, may be a symptom of tendonitis. Tendons are thick bands of tissue that connect your muscles to the bones. With excessive strain, tendons get yanked on and become very inflamed. Under normal circumstances, your tendons do a lot of work and can handle the stress, but when they are over-worked, you feel 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, usually 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.

“Treating Tendonitis Naturally!” COULD THE PAIN BE FROM POOR POSTURE? Poor posture weakens your muscles, which are needed when reaching, lifting, walking and doing normal everyday tasks. The weak muscles and poor posture place abnormal strain on the shoulders, elbows, knees and hip tendons. Therefore, depending on where the greatest strain is, you will most likely experience tendonitis. Tendonitis can be short-lived, but can also last for a long time. Chronic tendonitis actually disintegrates the tendons over time and can possibly lead to tearing. Most people experience tendonitis on a gradual basis. For example, it may start off as just soreness, but over time can become excruciating pain, which affects your ability to do many simple activities. Treatment

Tendonitis is very treatable with the right kind of therapy. The specialists at Synergy Therapeutic Group have helped thousands of people with tendonitis get back to doing the things they love quickly. 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.

“Normal”- what should be normal and what is are two separate issues. What should be normal is plenty of energy all day long and a vibrant level of health that allows you to not get sick, or if you do, to heal relatively quickly. What is normal are people with low energy, stressed out, missing sleep, getting sick all the time or perhaps developing chronic diseases. According to the World Health Organization the United States does not have the best outcomes when it comes to health despite spending the most money on health. Although the US contains only 5% of the global population, it consumes over 50% of the global drugs. This is not healthcare or even healthy; it is simply a way to try to force the body to operate normally despite poor health. True health changes with lifestyle patterns. There are 5 lifestyle patterns that you need to pay close attention to:

Most everyone has heard of all of these and is trying to improve them. The one that people don’t understand is #5. This is the one that will hold you back if you are trying all of the other things and not getting results. Our natural state is health; our body wants to get there. If you are doing everything right you should get there unless there is some kind of interference that is preventing it. Such as an imbalance or misalignment in your body.

I was unable to sleep through the night due to pain. I also lost my appetite due to chronic pain. My daily activities were all done with only one hand/ arm due to my pain. I rated my pain at a 8/9 on a scale of 1-10. Now my pain is gone and my range of motion is returning to normal. The numbness in my fingers is reduced to just a tingling sensation.” - Diane S.
