Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons, or the flexible bands that connect bone and muscle. Tendonitis can happen to anyone and is typically caused by overuse. 

If you have tendonitis you'll usually feel pain located where your injury is and in the surrounding area. You may also suffer from swelling, heat sensation, redness and decreased function in your foot and/or ankle. Severe tendon pain can result in an inability to walk or even place weight on the affected foot.

Most cases of tendonitis can be successfully treated with rest, medications or physical therapy to reduce pain. If tendinitis is severe and leads to the rupture of a tendon, you may need surgery. Common tendonitis of the foot and ankle are:

- Achilles tendonitis

- Peroneal tendonitis

- Posterior tibial Tendonitis 

If you are concerned that you may be suffering from any of these tendonitis conditions please request an appointment at Bigfoot Podiatry or give us a call at  (360) 616-9563 to schedule.
