In Wisconsin, fall is the season for hunting. And the two go together like Cheeseheads and the Green Bay Packers. Take care and stay safe this hunting season.
Hunting is not for everyone. But those who take part are dedicated to the sport. It’s tradition. Hunters plan and prepare for months before the season opener. Scouting out the best spots. Constructing hunting blinds. And airing out clothing to remove all human scent.

Is your child complaining about back or neck pain? It could be their backpack.

Tendonitis is a condition that describes the inflammation of the tendon.
Tendons are collagen-fiber tissues that connect the bones and muscles, which allow the body to move. There are thousands of tendons in the body. They allow each joint of the body to bend, flex, or rotate during movement.
As the tendon becomes inflamed, it swells and causes pain and stiffness during movement. Usually, people feel tendonitis pain near the joint. It’s often confused with arthritis.
Tennis elbow, trigger finger, De Quervain’s syndrome, and runner’s knee are common conditions affecting the tendons. Of course, tendonitis can also affect the shoulders, ankles, and toes.
Bursitis occurs when the bursa, a synovial-fluid-filled sac is inflamed. Though slippery and tiny, the bursa has a big job. It acts as a cushion and allows the bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles to work together without friction. When these tiny water-balloon-like sacs become inflamed and swell, movement is painful.
What causes bursitis?
Many cases of bursitis in the joints result from repeated movement of the joint. It is a type of overuse injury.
But overuse injury is only one cause of bursitis.
Age, arthritis, gout, injury, or surgery are other factors. Being overweight also applies more pressure to the bursa.
