Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow and Overuse Syndromes

Tendonitis, epicondylitis, and overuse syndromes are soft tissue injuries that most commonly occur from sports injuries, repetitive use or direct trauma

Tendonitis, epicondylitis, and overuse syndromes are soft tissue injuries that most commonly occur from sports injuries, repetitive use or direct trauma. Whenever medicine adds the ending “itis” to a word, it implies inflammation as the underlying source of the problem. While this is a good assumption, it is not always true.

Microtrauma, resulting in direct tissue damage such as tearing of the attachment of a tendon to bone, can be associated with swelling in the absence of inflammation.
