Physiotherapy treatment in London to help with Tendonitis: Deep transverse friction massage
Physiotherapy can help treat the symptoms of tendonitis and also identify the aggravating factors that cause the inflammation. Our London physiotherapist will work with you to identify the cause of the irritation or inflammation and relieve the symptoms.
Tendonitis treatment may include different options such as massage, mobilisation, stretching, and cold therapy to reduce the pain. Our physiotherapists use deep friction massage in particular, also called transverse friction massage, which is a very efficient method to aid fast recovery from tendonitis and is used on professional athletes. Once symptoms start subsiding, we will add strengthening exercises to your rehabilitation programme and develop a tailor made home programme of stretching and strengthening, in order to minimise the risk of recurrence.
Patients can speed up their own recovery and reduce the pain further by resting, stretching daily and applying ice on the affected area for 15-20 minutes, twice a day.
We are covered by most health insurances and are Bupa recognised and axa ppp recognised

What Is Tendonitis?
Tendonitis, also known as tendinitis, describes an irritation or inflammation of any tendon and it is caused by overuse and chronic strain. People often ignore the initial symptoms and power through their pain and only see a physician or physiotherapist when the pain becomes recurrent or unbearable and affects their daily quality of life.
What Causes Tendonitis?
Tendons are tough bands of fibre that connect your muscles to your bones. Regular overuse of the tendon can cause irritation or inflammation, which results into chronic pain and restricted mobility in the affected joint. You may also hear a crunchy sound when using the affected tendon.
Some of the more common forms of tendonitis include:
- lateral/medial epicondylitis, also known as tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, affects the elbow joint
- patellar tendonitis, affects the tendon that connects the kneecap to the shinbone
- achilles tendonitis, is localised at the back and sides of your heel and lower part of the calf
- rotator cuff tendonitis, affects the shoulder joint
- De Quervain’s tenosynovitis, a wrist and thumb tendonitis which often appears in young mothers carrying their baby, or in people who work in an office
