Tendons are the strap-like structures that attach muscles to the bones on which they act. Most tendons are short and rarely damaged. However, the long tendons of the limbs are very vulnerable to damage during exercise or as a result of direct trauma. The flexor tendons are most important and it is these that are discussed below.
Who is at Risk for Suffering from Inflammation or injury of the Tendon?
The tendons must be strong enough to endure plenty of abuse because their role is to connect muscle to bone. If your tendons are weak you’ll suffer from strength loss, pain and worst of all you’ll be predisposed to a debilitating injury. It’s time to give tendons the attention they deserve.
Common Treatments for Tendon Inflammation
Rest, anti-inflammatory drugs, arch supports, stretches, and therapeutic exercise are the most common treatments prescribed. Injury of the Achilles tendon is difficult to treat, and in many cases, the pain becomes chronic and limits the ability to engage in daily regular physical activities and sports activity.
What Are the Symptoms of Inflammation of the Achilles Tendon?
The pain caused from inflammation of the Achilles tendon is pain that begins gradually, and usually worsens over time. The pain appears in the rear part of the foot above the heel, and can be felt during physical activity.
How is Achilles Tendon Inflammation Treated?
- Physical therapy
- Surgery – in the event it has been decided to prevent further tearing of the tendon
- Low level laser: B-Cure Laser
Many scientific studies have reached the conclusion that low-level laser treatment is very effective in treating injuries to the tendon.
Treatment of Inflammation of the Tendon with B-Cure Laser
B-Cure Laser helps to treat the tendon by releasing endorphins, which ease the pain. It enhances the production of anti-inflammatory enzymes and releases collagen, which is needed to help tissue repair.
Photons of laser energy penetrates deep into the tissue and speeds up the body’s healing process.
Therapeutic effects of LLLT (laser phototherapy) include:
- Increased production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate)
- Increased cellular metabolism
- Increased collagen production
- Increased enzyme production
- Increased protein synthesis
- Improved blood circulation
- Improved lymphatic flow and drainage
- Reduced inflammation
All this serves to boost the body’s natural healing power, targeting the root causes of pain and providing rapid relief.
