What is tendinosis?
Shoulders are hard, fibrous coils which connect bones to the muscles. Healthy tendons are made of collagen directly, parallel fibers.
Tendinosis occurs when tendons degenerate, which means that they seem to break. Instead of collagen fiber, there may be small tears or unorganized collagen fibers in the shoulder.
What is the difference between tendinosis and tendonitis?
Tendonosis is more severe than the different and tendonitis. Tendonitis tendency is acute (short-term) swelling. It can go away in a few days with rest and physical therapy. The result of tendonitis from the sub-tears in the shoulder is suddenly or heavily loaded.
Tendonosis has no swelling, but the actual tissue in the shoulder is getting worse. Unwanted tendonitis may eventually cause tendinosis. It is important to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis. Tendonosis and tendonitis are treated separately.
Tendinosis refers to Tendon’s strict, thickness and scarfing. This results in loss of pain and flexibility in joints.
Common symptoms of tendinosis are:
- Local burning pain and swelling around the shoulder
- Pain that gets worse during and after activity
- Stiffness in the joint
- Restricted joint movement
Tendonosis is caused by the previous overuse of one shoulder. Due to the supply of your poor blood, long time is needed to repair the shoulder. Continuous and repetitive activity puts stress on the shoulder and slows down the treatment process. It eventually leads to tendinosis.
Tendonosis is more common in those people who are middle-aged or older because Tandon injures. It can be done in people as well:
- Those who exercise adequately or play the game without adequate rest
- Those who perform repetitive tasks (such as driving machinery)
- Whose tendonitis is not treated
Shoulder infections are usually mild and do not require a doctor’s care. To take care of tendinitis/tendinosis at home:
- Avoid activities that increase the injured area, but try to know about the daily routine as much as possible.
- For reducing inflammation, Apply cold pack 1-2 times for 20 minutes with day’s pain. (But do not apply snow directly on ice.)
- To reduce swelling, compress the area with an elastic bandage.
- After swelling of the swelling, apply heat by a heating pad or hot bath to relieve pain and promote treatment.
- If possible, increase the area to promote circulation.
To protect your tendons from injury:
- If you see pain during any activity, stop and relax.
- Ensure that your work adheres to ergonomic principles. Your chair’s height, desktop height, and keyboard position should match the length of your arm. Many workplace-free ergonomic consults provide.
- Ensure that your sports equipment and clothes are in good condition, which is suited to your game and are in line with the latest safety standards. It is especially important with athletic shoes.
- Train properly. After starting a new game or after a period of inactivity, gradually ramp up your level of labor so that you get a chance to strengthen and adjust your muscles.
- To improve the range of motion, stretch properly before and after the exercise.
- Use good technique and form while playing the game. Consider professional coaching when starting a new game or using a new piece of exercise equipment.
How can I stop tendinitis?
Beware of your exercises and spread all the muscles and tendencies that you are planning to exercise. Include warmth and cool-down exercises and stretches in your daily routine. As a general rule, for every 30 minutes of planned practice, a good warmth is five minutes. So, the treadmill or oval trainer should be 10 minutes hot before one hour. Try to stop the use of duplication of the same joint, rest it as possible.
Although treatment can be difficult, long-term approaches for tendinosis are good. About 80 percent of people with tendinosis complete recovery in 3 to 6 months, depending on whether their condition is outdated or not.
Untreated tendinosis can cause the tendon to break, so that initial treatment is important.
Can treat untreated tendonosis complications?
Tendonosis can make your shoulder more prone to injuries. The shoulder should be broken (tear) and surgery is needed.
