Research into bursitis and tendinitis

 What Are Researchers Learning?

Researchers, supported by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), are studying the role of the immune system in the inflammation of tendinitis. Their aim is to develop new strategies to prevent and treat tendinitis effectively.

Others are exploring worksite issues in the development of tendinitis and other work-related musculoskeletal disorders.
