Joint Pain: Inflammation of Tendons Causing Immobility
A condition in which the tissue connecting muscle to bone becomes inflamed (the picture below illustrates redness at the tendon). A tendon is tissue that attaches muscle to the bone. It is flexible, tough and fibrous and it can withstand tension. A ligament extends from bone to bone at a joint, while a tendon extends from muscle to bone. Tendons and muscles work together and exert a pulling force. Tendons and ligaments are tough and fibrous, but they are known as soft tissue, because they are soft when compared with bone.
- Sudden injury
- Repetition of a movement over time
- Health conditions
- Pain which worsens with movement
- A feeling that the tendon is crackling or grating as it moves
- Swelling, heat, and redness
- A lump may develop along the tendon
