Tendon strains

Tendon strains

When tendons (which join muscles to bones) become inflamed it is known as tendonitis. Our team of osteopaths in Oxford see patients with the condition suffering from pain, swelling, stiffness and restricted mobility in the affected joint. The associated muscles can be weakened and the joint can be warm to the touch.

We most often see tendonitis in the shoulder or forearm. It can be caused by overuse or repetitive use of the local muscles, putting the attached tendon under strain. Such strains can be triggered by heavy lifting, a sudden twist during exercise or competitive sport, or repetitive strain injury from common tasks like working at your computer

We’re here to help

In your first appointment at Central Oxford Osteopathy, one of our osteopaths will identify the source of your joint pain and tailor a treatment plan to meet your individual needs. We can use a wide range of gentle manual treatments depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis to reduce muscular tension in the affected area and improve movement in the joint. We may gently massage the soft tissues around the joint or rhythmically “rock” the joints to release tension.

Your long term recovery is important to us. Once we have treated your immediate pain at the clinic, we will help you maintain your recovery by recommending gentle exercise and stretches you can do at home. We may offer advice on your lifestyle particularly if we feel there is a repetitive activity that may be triggering your tendon pain. We may also offer advice on your posture and provide advice on diet and exercise.

If you think we can help you with your pain, then book to see an osteopath at our Oxford clinic today.
