Tendonitis Compensation Claims
A tendon is a tough and flexible band of fibrous tissue which attaches the muscles in the body to the bones. Skeletal muscles in the body are responsible for moving the bones and this enables a person to lift, jump, walk and move in a number of ways. Tendons come in a number of shapes and sizes. There are some which are small causing movements of the fingers and some which are larger, such as those found in the heels.
When the tendons function normally, they are able to glide smoothly when the muscle contract to cause movement. However, sometimes, the tendons can become inflamed and movement can become painful. The inflammation of the tendons is known as tendonitis and it can be caused by a number of factors.
Some of the most common causes of tendonitis include performing physical activities, overusing muscles or repetitive movement of certain body parts. Tendonitis can also develop as a result of an injury to the tendon, trauma or by making use of certain antibiotics including ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin. People who are at a greater risk of developing this condition are those who suffer from arthritis, diabetes, obesity, etc.
Tendonitis can come in different forms and the type depends on the movement and activity you carry out. Some of the common forms of this condition include:
- tennis elbow
- medial epicondylitis
- rotator cuff tendonitis
- calcific tendonitis
- patellar tendonitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- bicipital tendonitis
In most cases, tendonitis is caused as a result of poor working conditions and repetitive movements, just like other forms of repetitive strain injury. Overusing certain parts of the body can result in inflammation of the tendons and give rise to this condition. If you have developed tendonitis at work, you may be eligible to make tendonitis compensation claim.
