Tendonitis pain

Rusty Ford

Tendonitis pain is caused from an inflammation or swelling of a tendon due to over use or injury.

Things you can do for Tendonitis pain

  • To decrease pain, muscle spasm and swelling, apply ice to the injured area. Ice packs, ice massage or slush baths all can help.
  • Because swelling can result in loss of motion in an injured joint, compress the area until the swelling has ceased. Wraps or compressive (Ace) elastic bandages are best.
  • To reduce swelling, raise the affected leg above the level of your heart. It's especially important to use this position at night

Thinks you can take for Tendonitis pain

  • You can also try nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) or products containing acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) in an attempt to reduce the discomfort associated with Tendonitis. But be sure to consult your doctor if you need NSAIDs for an extended time because some should be used for only short periods to avoid complications.
  • Omega 3 fatty acids supplements have been shown in many studies to help reduce inflammation
  • Cetyl Myristoleate is a supplement mostly used to treat arthritis. Its main action is to naturally remove inflammation.
