Massage for Tendinitis

Massage Therapy for Tendinitis

Every time you stretch, twist or bend, your tendons -- the tissues that attach your muscles to your bones -- go into action. Too much action can result in tendinitis or tendonitis, the inflammation which is caused by repetitive motion as well as by aging and injuries that tear your muscle fibers.

Giving the irritated area time to heal makes sense, but often people can't take as much time as needed to let the muscle rest. While tendinitis usually goes away within a month, continued use of the joint can result in chronic tendinitis.

Unlocking Your Joints

If the tissue sheath surrounding your tendon becomes too narrow due to scarring or disease, chronic tendinitis can result in the joint "locking up." Massage can help provide relief before that happens, regardless of whether your tendinitis is caused by overuse or other factors.

Factors like injury frequently result in scar tissue, but regular massage therapy can loosen that tissue to keep it from clogging your muscle fibers. This not only helps you sustain your range of motion, but also keeps your muscles more supple to reduce the chance of further injury.

How Massage Works

Your professional massage therapist at Massage Envy will address your specific tendinitis issues with therapy customized for your situation. This might include:

  • Deep Tissue Massage, which helps reduce inflammation and eliminate scar tissue that can create tightness in muscles, tendons and ligaments
  • Sports Massage, which targets muscle-tendon junctions to improve endurance and flexibility while also helping reduce fatigue and prevent injury
