Tendonitis is a condition where a tendon or the connective tissue that surrounds the tendon becomes inflamed or irritated. This is often due to overuse such as repetitive work activities or from an acute injury. People who are at higher risk of developing tendinitis include manual laborers, assembly workers, meat cutters and computer keyboard users.

If you believe you suffer from this condition, report it as soon as possible to your employer and your union if there is one. Always seek prompt medical care from a qualified doctor who specializes in this condition.

Rest is important so that the condition does not become worse. Workers Compensation benefits should be filed for to allow adequate income during the disability period.
