What is Tendinitis
Tendinitis, or tendonitis, is the irritation or inflammation of a tendon, which is a fibrous connective tissue which attaches muscle to bone to help it move. Tendinitis can result in tenderness and pain at or near a joint. Sometimes, sufferers may experience a tingling sensation or numbness, and will also be restricted in their movements. The condition most often affects the shoulders, wrists, hands, heels, and elbows.

Acupuncture for Tendinitis
Acupuncture can be used to successfully treat various types of tendon issues, including tendinitis. This medical procedure involves stimulation of the sensory nerves that are located under the skin and within the muscles. Acupuncture treatments can substantially reduce the amount of time needed for healing.
Acupuncture relies less on the causal aspects of an injury or medical condition, and directs attention to the ways in which the flow of one's bodily energy has been affected, and whether the ailment is a systemic or a local problem. It is non-invasive, virtually painless and requires little or no down time.
What are Acupuncture Sessions Like?
Your acupuncturist will begin by assessing your general health while taking your medical history into consideration. A physical examination will take place, followed by the treatment itself. Acupuncture for tendinitis is best administered by an acupuncturist with experience in this particular area so that he or she will know the precise acupuncture points that will best deliver remedy for the pain.
Insertion of the Needles
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, barely discernible needles along certain points in the body. Once in place, the needles are left in position for a length of time determined by the acupuncturist, normally up to half an hour or less. Depending on each case, the acupuncturist will determine whether or not to rotate the needles or to stimulate them.
