Tendinitis

The inflammation of a specific tendon or tendon sheath.

Cause

Numerous factors may contribute to or cause tendinitis, including:

  • Strain, degeneration, or rupture of the involved tendon
  • Foot abnormalities, such as flat feet
  • Tight tendons, or tendon contracture
  • Improper training increases, or changes in training terrain

Signs and Symptoms

The localized response of inflammation within and around an affected tendon is associated with several noticeable physical symptoms, including:

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Heat
  • Decreased tendon function

Recovery

Noninvasive, conservative care treatment of tendonitis includes:

  • Relative Rest (avoiding prolonged activity or movements that exacerbate symptoms)
  • Use of footwear that is flat, widest at the ends of the toes, and flexible
  • Use of Correct Toes to help broaden the base of support, encourage lower leg stability.

With extended wear, Correct Toes can help to strengthen and align surrounding musculature, offloading areas prone to stain.
