Tendinitis (also called Tendonitis) is the inflammation or irritation of a tendon. A tendon is a tough band of fibrous connective tissue that connects muscle to bone and is capable of withstanding tension. Tendons and muscles work together to move bones. Tendinitis can occur in almost any area of the body where a tendon connects a bone to a muscle. Generally, Tendinitis is referred to by the body part involved, such as Achilles tendinitis (affecting the Achilles tendon), patellar tendinitis (jumper's knee, affecting the patellar tendon) etc. Tendinitis occurs most commonly at the base of the thumb, the elbow, shoulder, hip, knee or the heel.

Cause or Possible Risk Factors

  • Tendinitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the affected area or from a sudden more serious injury.
  • Activities that can cause tendinitis include: gardening, raking, carpentry, shoveling, painting, scrubbing, tennis, golf, skiing, throwing and pitching
  • Incorrect posture at work or home
  • Poor stretching or conditioning before exercise
  • Overuse injuries to tendons
  • Tendons can also become inflamed after a traumatic injury


  • Stiffness, tenderness and pain at the site of the tendon and surrounding area
  • Pain with movement of muscles and tendons
  • Swelling of the tendon
  • Loss of motion in the shoulder
