Tendonitis and Tendon Rupture

tendonitis and tendon rupture

When a tendon becomes irritated and inflamed, this is called tendonitis. The amount of stress we put on our feet makes these tendons especially susceptible to injury. Normally, tendons are strong and flexible, but over time they can become weak, stiff, thin, and painful. Minor injuries repeated over a lifetime or a direct traumatic event can both cause tendonitis. These tendon problems make it painful or difficult to walk, may cause weakening of the muscles, and can lead to more severe injuries like tendon rupture (causing a complete loss of a muscle’s function). Using advanced collagen products and precise targeted therapies, our goal is a faster and healthier return to an active lifestyle.
