Common Conditions - Soft tissue rheumatism

Inflammation in the soft tissues (e.g. bursae, tendons) can give rise to pain in the affected area and commonly affected sites include the elbow (tennis or golfer's elbow), wrist (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, de Quervain's tenosynovitis), shoulder (frozen shoulder, bicipital tendinitis), upper, outer thigh (trochanteric bursitis), heel (plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis). These often occur as a result of abnormal biomechanics or overuse of the affected limb. Treatment usually consists of rest, physiotherapy, and local steroid injections.
