Have you ever had to deal with tendinitis? What worked for you?
Ice is the best anti-inflammatory. The tendon is inflamed from overuse or misuse. It probably needs a good deal of rest. Ibuprofen is okay, but only if you really need it. Ice is best.
No, but my son had it,he is a basketball player,what worked for him was an ice-pack to control the inflammation and decrease swelling.Taking anti-inflammatory drugs also helped him .
Yoga. I don't like to take too many pills so I would alternate heat and ice and wear a wrist brace when I was working or cleaning the house, to limit the movement. But seriously, I had carpel tunnel and tendinitis so bad during my pregnancy and then after for almost a year, especially when I started doing online classes. using my laptop is a killer. But I force myself to take breaks and stretch and do a couple short wrist rotations, things like that. And yes, the yoga was something I pursued for other reasons and found GREAT relief in my wrist and all over pain. I barely have any problems anymore.
Tendons are rubbery cord like structures that attach a muscle to the bone. They exist in most parts of our musculoskeletal structures- noticeable at the shoulder, elbow, wrist, finger, knee, ankle, heel etc.
They can get inflamed from injury or overuse. For example in the case of the elbow one can get 'Tennis elbow' or 'Golfer's elbow' both of which are types of tendonitis due to overuse or stretching injuries even in day to day activities.
Running/Jogging can cause Achilles tendonitis on the back of the ankle/heel.
In most minor cases rest, some mild painkillers or local massage helps heal the inflammation. Prevention is doen by proper warming up exercises and frequent rest/massage. In advanced or long term cases anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen or diclofenac for a short while; physiotherapy, local shock wave therapy using sonic waves or injections help.. In rare cases surgery maybe warranted.
As a gymnastics coach I have seen literally hundreds of cases of tendinitis. I agree with cam8510 that ice is best however If you cannot or will not stop your activity, you can use a solve of horseradish and olive oil which is cheaper than icy hot or Ben-gay. You can couple a rub or cream with ibuprofen or naproxen but use sparingly.
Yes many times. Tendinitis is a condition that some people have where tendrils of a plant start to grow up your legs, after having taken root in your shoes. The tendrils of tendinitis are truly irritating and simple pruning shears will not alleviate this condition.
You must consult a horticulturalist with a specialty in clinging-vines.
The tendrils that are twining their way up your legs will eventually reach your head, if left unchecked and from there it is just a hop skip and jump to all-out tendril-head, similar to bed-head and can produce a bad hair day for weeks on end, resulting in your inability to say the word 'flabbergasted' without smirking.
Most doctors agree that tendinitis is caused by talking to chickens--remember--if chickens talk to you...don't answer them and you will be just fine.
Some kind of anti-inflammatory. But when the prescription runs out, you are on your own for however long it takes.
Until last year I had never heard of home use of electrical stimulation for pain relief. There is a company, Zynex, and I am sure they have competitors, that produces an e-stim device that has TENS, IFC, and NMES available. This unit can be covered by insurance although it does require a prescription from a doctor. Usually a doctor, orthopedic or general practitioner, will gladly sign off if you are able to access one from a Physical Therapist. The difference between IFC and TENS is TENS works only across the skin point to point and uses about 100 hz of energy compared to IFC uses 40 times that amount of energy and covers what is in a 4 electrode "box" or through a knee, elbow or shoulder. NMES is used for muscle re-education or even for reducing cramps in back or leg muscles.. All 3 are in this NexWave unit that also runs on batteries.
Ice first, then soaking in warm water helps. I try to avoid pills, but ibuprofen is usually recommended for inflammation. Resting it as much as possible will see quicker results.
I have had tendonitis once in my life. I just avoided moving the tendon for a week, but this doesn't help everyone. I guess I was lucky.
Tendonitis is the act of tendons become inflames. You have several kinds of tendons in your body and the inflamation could have happened for a variety of reasons. The number one thing that a person needs to do who gets tendonitis is to rest it. The person needs to protect that area by avoiding the movement of that tendon. Ice will help. Anti-inflammatory medications could help alot. Then, swimming could help to get that tendon moving again without the extra pressure.
