Sprains and Strains
Understanding Joint Pain
Sprained ankles and wrists, arthritic knees and hips and torn rotator cuffs all have one thing in common: They result in joint pain.
Tendonitis and Tenosynovitis
Tendonitis is when a tendon is inflamed. When a tendon is inflamed, it can cause swelling, pain, and discomfort. Another problem called tenosynovitis is linked to tendonitis. This is the inflammation of the lining of the tendon sheath around a tendon.
The Best Ways to Treat, Prevent Tendonitis
Tendonitis is your body's way of telling you, "Enough! You're putting too much stress on this muscle and joint."
Sprains, Strains, Breaks: What’s the Difference?

When you sprain an ankle, one or more ligaments on the outside of your ankle become stretched or torn.
