In order to deal properly with tendonitis we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors. We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow tendonitis to develop?"
Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind tendonitis consists of three steps:
Have you had Tendonitis, a painful condition involving inflammation, swelling, and irritation of a tendon?
Possible responses:→ Never had it / don't know
→ Probably had it/minor episode(s) now resolved
→ Major episode(s) now resolved
→ Current minor problem
→ Current severe problem
Chronic tendonitis is occasionally associated with hypothyroidism.
