About Tendonitis Treatment

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

How is Tendonitis Treated?

The different methods in which tendonitis is treated include the following:

  • Rest and Immobilization
    The patient needs ample rest to help the tendon heal and avoid further damage. Activities that aggravate the tendonitis should be avoided. A splint or brace may be used to help the joint remain in a fixed position. This helps in supporting the tendon that is pulled by overuse. Heat and cold compression may also help to reduce the symptoms.
  • Medication
    Medication to treat tendonitis includes NSAIDs like aspirin and ibuprofen, which help in controlling pain and inflammation. Pain relieving ointments that contain anti-inflammatory components help in relieving pain and dilating the blood vessels. Steroid injections are also injected into the tendon sheath that helps in reducing pain and preparing for physical therapy.
  • Physical Therapy
    Physical therapy consists of exercises that help in stretching and strengthening the muscle and tendon. The patient may do light stretches in the beginning when the pain is acute. This also helps in restoring the tendon's capacity to function appropriately. Healing is improved and further injuries are therefore prevented with physical therapy.
  • Surgery
    Surgery is rarely required to treat tendonitis, and may be performed if other tendonitis treatments fail to achieve any relief. It is done to physically extract the injured and damaged part of the tendon. After the surgery, a cast may be used to support the affected tendon for 5 to 6 weeks.
  • Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
    Calcific tendonitis is also treated with extracorporeal shockwave therapy. Research on this is ongoing.
  • Ultrasound Therapy
    In some cases of tendonitis, ultrasound therapy is used for treatment. It may show good results for calcific tendonitis.

With the ongoing treatments the patient gradually recovers from the symptoms in 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the severity of the tendonitis.

After the treatment, when the patient is recovering, the patient should avoid straining and overusing the affected tendons.

The patient should continue doing light exercises to strengthen the muscles and retain flexibility.
