  • Health and fitness: Tendonitis...

    Tendonitis is a painful condition that affects millions of Americans each year.

    Tendonitis is an inflammation of the connective tissue that attaches muscle to bone. The most common symptoms of tendonitis are pain, tenderness and limited range of motion.

    Every time a muscle contracts it places stress on the tendons that attach that muscle to bone. Too much stress placed on these tendons causes inflammation.
