One of the first things to remember is that you will see Tendinitis spelled as "Tendonitis". No big deal --- it's the same thing. However, Tendinitis is not what you think it is ---- not even close. Be prepared for a complete surprise as you search the various types of Tendinitis on this page. You will quickly learn why standard medical therapies such as CORTICOSTEROID INJECTIONS and ANTI-INFLAMMATORY MEDICATIONS are not doing you who suffer with Tendinitis any good --- even if they temporarily help with your pain. Again, be prepared to be shocked. And don't say I didn't warn you!
TYPES OF TENDINITIS
AREAS OF TENDINITIS
- ROTATOR CUFF TENDINITIS: The Rotator Cuff is made up of four muscles that surround the shoulder.
- SUPRASPINATUS TENDINITIS: The Supraspinatus Tendon is not only the most commonly injured of the Rotator Cuff Muscles, it is the most common to find tendinitis in as well.
- TRICEP TENDINITIS: Triceps Tendinitis is rare. About the only people I ever find it in is carpenters (hammering) and weightlifters. However, here is the webpage.
- BICEPS TENDINITIS: Because both heads of the bicep muscle have attachment points in the front of the shoulder, Biceps Tendinitis is frequently mistaken for Bursitis or a Rotator Cuff problem.
- LATERAL EPICONDYLITIS (Tennis Elbow): Although I have never seen anyone who got this problem playing tennis (hey, I live in the Ozarks), it is nonetheless extremely common.
- MEDIAL EPICONDYLITIS (Golfer’s Elbow): Not quite as common as Tennis Elbow above.
- WRIST / FOREARM FLEXOR TENDINITIS: This is Tendinitis on the palm side of the forearm and wrist.
- WRIST / FOREARM EXTENSOR TENDINITIS: This is Tendinitis on the backhand side of the forearm and wrist.
- THUMB TENDINITIS / DeQUERVAIN'S SYNDROME: This extremely common problem can be debilitating. You will frequently hear it referred to as DeQuervain’s Syndrome.
- GROIN (Hip Adductor) TENDINITIS: I have included Tendinitis of the Groin under “Hip Flexor Tendinitis” below.
- HIP FLEXOR TENDINITIS: Hip Flexor Tendinitis will manifest in the upper front thigh or groin area.
- PIRIFORMIS TENDINITIS: This problem is related to PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME, and causes pain in the butt (sometimes with sciatica as well).
- SPINAL TENDINITIS: Although most people never think of it, the potential for developing Spinal Tendinitis is greater than you ever imagined possible.
- KNEE TENDINITIS: This is arguably the single most common reason that people visit a Sports Physician.
- QUADRICEPS / PATELLAR TENDINITIS: A form of Knee Tendinitis
- HAMSTRING TENDINITIS: Hamstring Tendinitis can cause knee, hip, and buttock problems.
- ACHILLES TENDINITIS: Achilles Tendinitis is found in the large tendon in the very back of the lower leg / ankle.
- ANKLE TENDINITIS: This common Tendinitis can typically be dealt with by following a few simple procedures.
- TIBIALIS ANTERIOR TENDINITIS: This is related to the category above, and is typically found in the front of the ankle.
- POSTERIOR TIBIAL TENDINITIS: This is related to the category above, and is typically found near the bony knob on the inside of the ankle.
- APONEUROSIS / APONEUROTICA TENDINITIS: Although you have probably never heard the word before, “Aponeurosis” are flattened out tendons. They are almost always referred to as fascia, but technically this is incorrect.
