Tendonitis – The Sneaky Injury that Ruined My Season

Tendonitis – The Sneaky Injury that Ruined My Season

I couldn’t help but cringe when hit after hit went out of bounds.

This was the match I’d looked forward to all season, but my shoulder stiffness and pain killed my game.

In the beginning of my tennis season, I was more in-shape than ever before. This should have been my best season yet.

But towards the peak of my training, I developed a little bit of shoulder pain.

The pain was sneaky. It would come and go. It was so gradual, that I initially brushed it off as soreness.

Eventually I noticed that I was playing with pain more days than not. I began to hear a clicking sound when I hit the ball. My shoulder started to feel weak and stiff.

I decided to see my doctor. My doctor told me to rest, ice, and take Ibuprofen.

This advice helped temporarily, but it seemed that every time I started playing again, the symptoms would return only days later.

I went back to my doctor, who gave me a corticosteroid injection.

Little did I know that the injection only caused MORE damage by weakening the inflamed tendon in my shoulder.

The injection helped alleviate my symptoms, but my symptoms kept returning when it wore off, and they seemed to get worse and worse.

The match that I was so excited for was ruined by tendonitis in my shoulder.

 

After My Season Was Over, I Still Had Pain for MONTHS Before Visiting Back in Motion…

After My Season Was Over, I Still Had Pain for MONTHS Before Visiting Back in Motion…

Not only that – but months went by and I STILL had symptoms, even after long periods of rest.

Nothing seemed to work, but I refused to give up. I couldn’t just let a bad shoulder ruin my favorite sport – and all the work I had done to get to the level I was at.

I did a little research and discovered Back in Motion Sport & Spine Physical Therapy which offers physical therapy in Fort Myers, Florida and physical therapy in Cape Coral, Florida.

The awesome physical therapists at Back in Motion understood my frustration and explained why the treatments I tried had failed.

They worked with me to design a program that would heal my shoulder tendonitis once and for all.

If You Have These Symptoms, Stop Wasting Your Time on Treatments that Don’t Work!

If You Have These Symptoms, Stop Wasting Your Time on Treatments that Don’t Work!

Our patient’s story is the perfect example of what many people go through before finally getting the proper treatment at Back in Motion.

The gradual worsening of symptoms, the failed “symptom masking” treatments, and the recurrence of pain as soon as you thought you were better are typical of tendonitis.

Without the right treatment, the pain will keep coming back and cause symptoms that last months, years, or even a lifetime.

Tendonitis can quickly develop into more serious conditions such as tendinosis (a tendon injury that can take months to recover from) or a ruptured tendon.

You Are More At-Risk of Developing Tendonitis if You Do This…

You Are More At-Risk of Developing Tendonitis if You Do This…

Tendonitis can afflict anyone, but it is considered an overuse injury.

If you perform tasks that require a lot of repetitive movements, you are more likely to develop tendonitis if preventative measures are not taken.

Some of the activities that put you at a higher risk of developing tendonitis include:

  • Sports that require a lot of repetitive movements (such as tennis, golf, swimming, running, baseball, skiing)
  • Gardening
  • Woodworking
  • Home improvement work (such as painting, scrubbing, and shoveling)

Avoid Long-Term Problems with the Proper Diagnosis & Treatment of Your Tendon…

Some of the symptoms of tendonitis are similar to other conditions.

Getting the right diagnosis and treatment is a must if you want to eliminate the injury for good (and who doesn’t?)

But general doctors do not specialize in overuse injuries such as tendonitis.

Your best bet is to see one of our injury specialists directly – all of whom are certified Doctors of Physical Therapy with years of experience in diagnosing and treating tendonitis and other injuries.

Since symptoms alone are not enough to diagnose tendonitis, our specialists take you through a comprehensive exam.

We will ask you questions and guide you through specific testing to ensure that the diagnosis is 100% accurate.

After you receive an accurate diagnosis, we get to the best part: finding the underlying cause of your tendonitis.

This second step is what makes our treatment such a success.

Tendonitis is not a “random” injury – there is a reason why you have it…and once we find that reason, we can get rid of your tendonitis PERMANENTLY.

 

Treating the Root Cause to Permanently Eliminate the Tendon Injury

Treating the Root Cause to Permanently Eliminate the Tendon Injury

We practice a revolutionary approach called The Gray Method TM, a cause-based method of treatment that eliminates injuries by treating the root cause.

The underlying cause of your tendonitis might be muscle weakness, lack of mobility, or improper technique – just to name a few.

Knowing the root cause of your tendonitis is key to fixing your symptoms for good.

Our physical therapists can find what’s causing YOUR tendonitis (often in less than 20 minutes) to create an individualized treatment plan that will work for YOU.

Your car just started to get a noisy engine.

Each time you drive it, the engine gets noisier.

So, each time you drive it, you turn the radio up louder.

I think we can all agree that turning up the radio WON’T fix the issue – it will just disguise the noise.

We call this scenario “treating the symptom” instead of the cause.

Inevitably, the car will stop working because the engine wasn’t actually fixed…it was just subdued with the radio noise.

Unfortunately, traditional methods of injury treatment mirror this scenario. Doctors often prescribe painkillers and rest – things that will treat the symptoms but not the cause.

Home-based treatments and exercises are also ineffective if they do not target the root of your injury.

Our full-body, caused-based treatment approach means that we will actually “fix the engine” rather than the symptoms.
