Tendons are tough, flexible, fibrous bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones. When tendons become inflamed, irritated or suffer microscopic tears, the condition is called tendinitis. Laser therapy stimulates quick healing and reduces time away from work or activity. Tendinitis usually happens for one of two reasons:
- Over-use: An action repeated too frequently
- Overload: An activity is increased too quickly causing injury
