Medical conditions that are frequently treated include: partial rotator cuff tears, arthritis of the shoulder joint, labral tears or degeneration, rotator cuff tendonitis & tendonosis
, AC Joint Injury, biceps, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, bulging disc, Facet Arthropathy, chronic back pain, knee arthritis, meniscus tears, tendon and ligament tears, overuse injuries and much more.
Conditions such as tendonosis
(degeneration of the tendons around the hip) can be successfully treated with PRP injections.
Forced eccentric loading to a contracting triceps has been shown to be the main mechanism of triceps tendonitis, tendonosis
This degeneration is similar to the chronic necrosis of tendonosis
, which features loss of collagen continuity, increases in ground substance (matrix of connective tissue) and vascularity, and the presence of fibro-blasts rather than the inflammatory cells usually seen with the acute inflammation of tendonitis, (13)
The medical term 'tendonosis
' had put the Portuguese nation on high alert in recent weeks.
When the inflammation goes away (as in chronic problems) but the tendon is still injured, then it is call tendonosis
. Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) and medical epicondylitis (golfer's elbow) are two very common causes of elbow pain.
EPAT seems to work best for paratendonosis and for tendonosis
without mucinous degeneration.
The differential diagnosis for antecubital region pain includes partial tear of the distal biceps tendon, cubital bursitis, bicipital tendonosis
, entrapment of lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve, and posterior interosseous nerve syndrome.
The Clinic commentary on treatments for chronic Achilles tendonosis
(Running & FitNews, Nov/Dec 2009) caught my attention since I see about 150 to 200 cases per year.
(19.) Wright T, Yoon C, Schmit BE Shoulder MRI refinements: differentiation of rotator cuff tear from artifacts and tendonosis
, and reassessment of normal findings.
As pain increases from this process, so does weakness in the tendon and muscle, which then can lead to further development of calcified nodules, tendonosis
changes, degenerative partial fiber tears, cyst formation, and central tendon necrosis.
The effects of oveeruse combined with intrinsec or extrinsec alterations in an animal model of rotator cuff tendonosis
