  • IN PODIATRIST DESCRIBES THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TENDONITIS AND TENDONOSIS

 

PODIATRIST, DR. MARK JONES STATES, "WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TENDONITIS AND TENDINOSIS AND WHAT CAUSES IT?  A TENDON IS A FLEXIBLE BAND OF TISSUE THAT CONNECTS MUSCLES TO THE BONES IN YOUR JOINTS.  TENDONITIS IS INFLAMMATION OF THE TENDON, WHILE TENDINOSIS IS THE THICKENING OF THE TENDON OR SMALL TEARS IN THE TENDON.  IF IT DOESN'T HEAL PROPERLY, IT BECOMES THICK AND IRREGULAR AND RUNS THE RISK OF RUPTURING.  IT CAN BE CAUSED BY A VARIETY OF FACTORS, INCLUDING RUNNING OR OTHER SPORTS, CLIMBING STAIRS, OR WALKING.  IT CAN OCCUR THROUGH REPETITIVE MOVEMENTS INCLUDING TYPING, GRIPPING A TOOL, OR EVEN CLEANING."
