Tendinitis: causes, symptoms, treatments

Residents of Illinois who are over the age of 40 should be aware of a condition called tendinitis: the inflammation or irritation of the tendons, especially those in the elbow, shoulder, hips, knees, Achilles tendon and base of the thumb. As people age, their tendons become less elastic, less tolerant of stress and more vulnerable to tears. Combine this with repetitive impacts, no matter how mild, as well as more serious injuries, and people raise their risk for tendinitis.

What to know about carpal tunnel syndrome

Illinois residents or others who feel numbness or tingling in their arm or wrist could be experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome. This occurs because the median nerve is being squeezed while going through the wrist. The nerve itself starts in the neck, travels through the arm and then connects through the wrist before entering the hand. If treated early enough, the condition could be cured with a simple splint or by making other easy adjustments.

Common work-related injuries for Illinois radiologists

Almost a third of practicing radiologists in the U.S. suffer from lower back pain because of their job duties, according to a report by the American College of Radiology. Some medical experts believe that picture archiving and communication systems could be responsible for the musculoskeletal injuries. Although radiologists have been transferring from their legacy, film-based environment to an archiving and communication system with digital capability for the past 30 years, some who depend on PACS may find that the system's disadvantages outweigh its advantages in regard to their health.
