Symptoms

Tendonitis is an inflammation in or around the tendons, which are bands of strong fibrous tissue that holds muscle to bone.

Causes

Tendons are strong and can usually deal with our daily activities, but occasionally they can become swollen because of overexertion, disease, or injury. Common causes of tendonitis include sudden bursts of exercise when you are not used to it, lifting heavy weights, sports injuries and repetitive stress.

The fibres may become damaged and torn, resulting in extreme pain. The more you use a damaged tendon after it has been damaged, the worse the pain will become and the longer it will take to heal.

Natural Therapies

Fish oil capsules are indicated to reduce the inflammation.

Vitamin C and zinc will assist your body’s ability to heal itself.

Apply cold compresses immediately after the injury, or as soon as you feel the pain.

Lifestyle Factors

Rest, Rest, Rest… You need to keep your weight off the affected area to help it heal.

Remedies

Always warm up before exercising or lifting heavy items.

Returning to your previous level of activity before the tendon has fully healed increases the likelihood of the condition recurring.

Important Notes

Consult your healthcare professional if your pain doesn’t ease up in 7 to 10 days or is very severe and there is swelling.
