How Is Tendonitis Treated?

How Is Tendonitis Treated?

Though tendonitis can be a hassle, causing pain and keeping you away from activities, treatment is often simple. It starts with an effort to reduce inflammation, and thereby pain. Your sports medicine doctor will first recommend resting and taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications and/or anti-inflammatory creams. As well, he or she may have you use the RICE orthopedic injury treatment if the injury is new or severe. If you need more aggressive treatment, your doctor may inject your tendon with cortisone to reduce inflammation or use ultrasound to promote healing. Physical therapy may also be used as part of your treatment and rehabilitation, with the goal of stretching and strengthening the injured tendon. In more severe cases, tendonitis can be repaired with surgery.
