FAQ's For Tendonitis

   

Most often, tendonitis takes between 2-4 weeks to heal fully. However, chronic tendonitis may take more than 6 weeks.

Tendonitis can be cured with rest, pain relievers, hot and cold compresses, corticosteroid injections, or surgery.

Tendonitis is caused by the inflammation of the tendons due to repetitive motions (overuse) or injury.

Tendonitis can cause a lot of pain to patients if the joint is overused or subject to stress. Leaving tendonitis untreated can cause tendon rupture which will have to be surgically treated.

The following methods can effectively heal tendonitis:
Giving the joint rest
Hot and cold compress treatment
OTC pain relievers such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, etc
Splinting and bandaging of the affected joint
Corticosteroid injections
Physiotherapy
Stretching and exercise

 
Tendonitis or tendinitis refers to the inflammation of the tendons due to injury or overuse. It is one of the main causes of sports injury and is acute in nature. There are several different types of tendonitis, the most common being:
Achilles tendonitis—The Achilles tendon attaches the heel to the calf muscle. This tendon can get sprained due to sports, rheumatoid arthritis or shoes that don’t fit right.
Supraspinatus tendinitis—This occurs in the top of the shoulder and causes pain when the arms are raised.
Tennis or golfer’s elbow—Often called elbow tendonitis, there are two sub-types here. When the injury occurs in the outer side of the elbow, it is called tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis. When the injury occurs on the inner side of the elbow, it is called medial epicondylitis. The pain oftens radiates down to the wrist.
De Quervain’s stenosing tenosynovitis—This occurs in the sheath between the thumb and the wrist, causing intense pain and an inability to use the thumb.
Trigger finger or thumb—Here, the finger or thumbs gets locked in a bent position and makes a clicking sound when straightened. It often causes a nodule to form at the tendon.
Tendinitis of the wrist—This often affects those making the same repeated wrist motions, such as production line workers or badminton players.

Symptoms to tendonitis include:
Tendonitis pain which worsens on movement
A crackling or grating feeling along the tendon when it moves
Swelling and redness
Hot to touch
A nodule which develops along the tendon

Tendonitis treatment involves reducing the inflammation and relieving the pain. The following methods can effectively heal tendonitis:
Giving the joint rest
Hot and cold compress treatment
OTC pain relievers such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, etc
Splinting and bandaging of the affected joint
Corticosteroid injections
Physiotherapy
Stretching and exercise

If the above methods don’t work, a doctor may suggest extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) to break up calcium deposits in the tendon and relieve pain. Calcium deposits can also be removed surgically as a cure for tendonitis.
