Tendon Injury Misdiagnosis – Compensation Claims
Tendons connect our muscles to our bones, all over our bodies, but most obviously in our hands and feet. They can easily be injured, particularly in sports, dancing accidents or other physical mishaps, even some as apparently innocent as a woman switching from high heels to flat shoes. Crushing, stretching, or cutting – even in the case of the smallest cuts – can lead to tendon injuries, which can be painful and debilitating. A sufferer will experience tenderness, inflammation, swelling or numbness, so if you have been subject to any of these symptoms you should seek urgent medical attention.
As is so often the case with illness or injury, early diagnosis counts for a great deal
