TENDONITIS, TENDINOSIS & TENDINOPATHY
Are you possibly suffering from tendonitis or tendinopathy?
Tendonitis is an inflammation of a tendon, a thick cord that connects bone to muscle. We now know that tendon pain is either tendonitis (acute condition with inflammation in the tendon) or tendinosis (a more chronic condition). Tendinopathy is a term used to describe various pathologies of tendons.
Are your joints causing you pain?
Osteoarthritis affects 3 million Canadians, or one in 10 people. This disease touches men as well as women, and usually starts at age 45. It affects the hands, hips, knees, toes, etc.
