Tendonitis can occur anywhere there is a Fibrolief Review tendon. A tendon is the thick cord that attaches a bone to the surrounding muscle. The most common places for tendonitis to occur are in the wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee and Achilles. Wrist tendonitis is seen often with painters, people who use a scrubbing motion and pitchers. Most often in the wrist it is inflammation of the tendon sheath. After icing the area the best treat is resting the wrist and avoiding activities that will only aggravate the wrist.Achilles tendonitis is occurs in the back of the heel. If not careful and re-aggravate this area it can result in serious complication such as a rupture that would require surgery. This is seen often in professional sports players but can happen to anyone who flexes the ankle frequently.Tendonitis in the kneecap "Patellar" is referred to as jumper's knee. This follows the same treatment as the Achilles tendonitis and if not careful can have serious complications if not rested until the tendon has a chance to heal.These are just a few of the spots that are commonly seen by emergency room doctors; all who agree that icing the area immediately after injury is the best immediate treatment possible. Many orthopedic doctors disagree; however, on the treatment that follows the day of injury.
