When a tendon is inflamed, it can cause swelling, pain, and discomfort. Another problem called tenosynovitis is linked to tendonitis. This is the inflammation of the lining of the tendon sheath around a tendon but can also involve inflammation of the tendon itself.

The cause of tendonitis and tenosynovitis is often not known. They may be caused by strain, overuse, injury, or too much exercise. Tendonitis may also be related to a disease such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, or infection.

 Common types of these tendon problems include:

Tennis Elbow. It causes pain in the backside of the elbow and forearm, along the thumb side when the arm is alongside the body with the thumb turned away.

Golfer’s Elbow. It causes pain from the elbow to the wrist on the palm side of the forearm. The pain is caused by damage to the tendons that bend the wrist toward the palm.

Rotator cuff tendonitis. This is also known as biceps tendonitis. It’s a shoulder disorder. It causes inflammation of the shoulder capsule and related tendons.

DeQuervain’s Syndrome. This is the most common type of tenosynovitis disorder. It causes swelling in the tendon sheath of the tendons of the thumb.

Trigger finger. The tendon sheath becomes inflamed and thickened. This makes it hard to extend or flex the finger or thumb. The finger or thumb may lock or “trigger” suddenly.

Soniclife has programmes for DeQuervain’s Syndrome and Trigger Finger and can be tailored to treat all the listed types of tenonitis and Tenosynovitis as it can be used to treat virtually any and all form of Tendonitis.

Sonimed has many pre-programed of treatments for specific forms of tendonitisbut as with Sonilife will treat Tendonitis throughout the Locomotor Apparatus.

The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of the therapeutics compound to provide a powerful relief from the discomfort these conditions can cause, in the case of Soniclife this can be increased with the inclusion of TENS, and both machines ability to provide tissue regeneration and improved blood circulation allow the body to recover and get back to normal as quickly as possible.
