What is Tendonitis?

Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon(s), which causes pain on movement of a joint.

It is important to get treatment as early as possible as it is possible that the condition could degenerate causing further damage to the tendon and also allow growth of bony spurs.

This is a phrase that may have (or may not have) originated from the East, but it does illustrate a difference in approach to soft tissue injuries that what is often advised here in the UK.

In the acute stages of injury, the application of the R.I.C.E protocol is recommended, however, if you have been suffering from a tendonitis injury for longer than 3 months, you will be glad to hear that here at Thrive we have many more effective treatment options based on the traditional medicine of Eastern martial arts.


What alternatives to you offer?

We have practitioners who are experts in acupuncture, Tui Na Medical Massage and Eastern Body Movement – all therapies that have treated soft tissue injuries sustained by Martial Artists in China for centuries.

“I had suffered from back pain (sciatica) for 8 years on and off. During a particularly painful episode I decided to try acupuncture and i really can’t recommend it enough – I had six treatments with Ross over six months ago and I haven’t experienced any back pain since.”

Cinnamen, Shoreditch

“For years I have suffered neck pain, back pain, migraines and felt constantly tired and drained, but after a few sessions of acupuncture with Ross the migraines have finally stopped, and my day to day working life has become so much easier. I highly recommend Ross as a skilled practitioner. He has been a wonderful support also for the emotional stress that is a result of my years of pain.”

Fixed from physical pain, fixed emotionally, more energy, perspective and the will to get back up and live another day. This may all sound very big but it's what happens... there are other days when I just need a "top up" and that works fantastically too! So what ever you are going through from a bit of tiredness to a life crisis I
