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
Stretching and exercise
