Tendonitis Causes
Gifts that keeps on giving.

Tendonitis Causes come in many, many different forms.

Most any activity you participate in has the potential to help cause Tendonitis.

Realistically, Tendonitis is caused by a variety of variables all working together.

Even Sudden Onset Tendonitis is usually just a 'final straw' irritation of an ongoing issue.

Tendonitis Causes -- Repetitive Strain

Tendonitis starts with muscle tightness.

Then because muscles are too tight, it's really easy to get a small irritation or micro-trauma injury.

Then a Pain Causing Dynamic kicks in, started off by the tiny injury and Inflammation.

Repetitive Motion Injuries are commonly called Repetitive Strain Injuries because tight muscles put extra tension on their tendon and connective tissue connections, which puts constant tensile strain on tissue.

Whether you are knitting, typing on a keyboard, running, pulling coffee as a barista, or making millions as a professional baseball pitcher the motions you perform over and over can start and then continually add to a Tendonitis dynamic.

As a concept, Tendonitis is caused by repetitive motion.

All activities can cause Tendonitis

Whether the activity is in sports, in the workplace, or at home, ANY activity performed repetitively has the potential to cause Tendonitis.

Medications that cause Tendonitis and Tendon injury

The last couple few years have seen an explosion of Tendon injury caused by a certain family of antibiotics, the poster child of which is called Levaquin. Levaquin is followed closely by another antibiotic family member, Cipro.

If you all of a sudden have tendon and/or joint pain, or other symptoms tendon/joint/muscle/skin related, and you have been taking antibiotics like Levaquin, Cipro, or Floxin, you may want to start looking into this.

Other Tendonitis Causes

Along with the activities listed above, there are some variables that can affect the onset and chronic existence of Tendinitis.

1. Not enough Protein. You need building blocks to maintain and repair tendon tissue. Eating protein sources like meat and eggs, cottage cheese, and Bone Broth are necessary to counter this.

2. Not enough good fats, like Omega 3s. Omega 3 fats are vital and necessary to the body, plus they are a natural anti-inflammatory. Aside from good fish and flax oil, here is a great choice for these essential fatty acids. Omega 3's from Dr. Mercola.

3. Not enough good sleep. The only time you physiologically rejuvenate is when you sleep.

4. Not enough Vitamin D3, calcium, B12, or Magnesium. You need it, need it, need it.

5. Not enough water intake. Sponges needs water to be soft and squishy. You are one big sponge. Drink more water. Coffee, soda, and juice do NOT count as water.
