Tendinitis is inflammation of tendons; chronic inflammation is often termed as a tendinopathy. Inflammation of a lower limb tendon can happen pretty much all over the lower limb. Tendons are pieces of tissue which connect muscle to bone. There are numerous types of tendinitis that can occur throughout the lower limb.
For example Achilles tendinitis, peroneal tendinitis or posterior tibial tendinitis. Tendinitis can be effectively treated by a combination of therapies from Shockwave therapy to Fascial Manipulation Therapy (Stecco method). High intensity laser is also a suitable method of treatment.
