TENDONS

Tendons connect muscle to bone.

They are made of bundles of collagen fibers that make them very strong..

They are vital to the human body for all our daily activities by stabilizing joints along with ligaments.

But tendons are vulnerable.

WEAKENING OF TENDONS

Tendons can weaken, especially in the following cases :

FLEXOFYTOL-icone-effort

after a repetitive physical effort

FLEXOFYTOL-icone-intense

physical activity that is too intense and too long without proper training 
(for example: an untrained person suddenly taking up sport is more easily injured)

FLEXOFYTOL-icone-position

poor posture

FLEXOFYTOL-icone-medicaments

taking certain medication
(antibiotics, especially fluoroquinolones, statins, etc.) 

FLEXOFYTOL-icone-alimentation

 poor diet

FLEXOFYTOL-icone-deshydratation

dehydration

FLEXOFYTOL-icone-stress

stress

FLEXOFYTOL-icone-chaussures

wearing shoes that are too flat…

WHAT TO DO ?

It is important to take action without delay :

  • rest the joint
  • apply an ice pack for half an hour on the sensitive area
  • get appropriate treatment. Ask your pharmacist for advice. Some herbal medicines like turmeric can be used to reinforce the tendons.

If there is any doubt consult your doctor.
