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.
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.
