The swelling of the tendons, or these masses of thick and fibrous tissues that support and attach the muscles to the joints, is known as tendinosis. It is a chronic condition that usually occurs in the wrist, elbows, shoulders, knees (patellar tendon), and the heels (Achilles tendon).
Tendinosis is often confused with tendonitis because the symptoms could be similar. However, tendinosis has no inflammation. Rather, it is a chronic condition characterized by the degeneration of collagen as a result of overuse.
Because the tendons are swollen, there is also a burning sensation and pain that gets worse with physical activity. If your daily activities are being limited by tendinosis, consult our doctors in pain management Pembroke Pines for a medical evaluation.
