What is Tendonitis and Tendinopathy?
Tendonitis and Tendinopathy are conditions that affect the tendons, which are the strong, fibrous cords that connect muscles to bones. Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons, while tendinopathy is an overuse injury that can lead to degeneration of the tendons. Both conditions can cause pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving the affected joint. Tendonitis can occur in any tendon in the body, but it is most commonly found in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles. Tendinopathy is common in the same areas but also can happen at the Achilles tendon, patella, and biceps.
Tendonitis of the Upper Left Arm
Tendonitis of the upper left arm is a common condition that can cause pain and discomfort in the shoulder and elbow area. The condition occurs when the tendons in the upper left arm become inflamed due to overuse or repetitive motions. It can occur as a result of sports or other activities that require repetitive arm movements, such as throwing or lifting. Common symptoms of tendonitis of the upper left arm include pain, stiffness, and weakness in the shoulder and elbow.
