Physiotherapy for Tendonitis in Colchester, Essex 

Tendon pain is a common ailment which can be treated successfully with physiotherapy. Tendon pain can be caused by tendon reactivity, degenerative changes in the tendon, or physical damage to the tendon due to injury. Our clinic provides physiotherapy for Tendonitis in Colchester to ease pain and encourage healing. 
 
Tendon reactivity is the most common cause of tendon pain and usually occurs when there is a significant change in tendon loading from a sudden increase of activity or resumption of normal activity after a significant period of rest. Reactive tendon pain is not usually associated with structural damage to the tendon, however, increased fluid, protein and tenocytes (cells that maintain tendon tissue) can be observed histologically. 
 
Tendon degeneration occurs when small fibres (which make up tendon tissue) become disorganised causing a reduction in tendon strength and reducing the tendons capacity to load. 
Acute tendon injury occurs when a sudden force damages the tendon tissue. 
 
Tendon reactivity and degeneration can be treated by initially reducing the load on the tendon so that activity can be done with minimal discomfort. Once a comfortable zone of activity has been identified then the tendons tolerance to activity can be gradually increased over time until the required level of activity has been met.
