Tendonitis Causes & Symptoms
Your tendons are fibrous, flexible bands of tissue that connect your bones to your muscles. When tendons become inflamed and swollen, it results in tendonitis, which is a source of foot and ankle pain for many people.
So how does tendonitis happen? In most cases, tendonitis happens due to overuse, but it can also be caused by improper stretching or failure to stretch before exercising, as well as improper form when running, lifting weights, etc.
You may have tendonitis if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Dull ache
- Sharp pain
- Burning sensation
- Muscle stiffness or weakness
- Radiating pain in the foot and ankle
