Deltoid Tendonitis Symptoms
MRI results, intrasubstance injury in supraspinatus with tendonitis in subscapularis and supraspinatus & bursitis in sub deltoid. Over 4 months of pain, I completed 6 weeks of PT with little to no improvement, what are my options for treatment now?
Localized pain: Shoulder tendonitis pain is aroused by companion muscle use & firm palpation of tendon-bone insertion sites. Shoulder tendonitis commonly seen anterior shoulder region from biceps muscle. Posterior shoulder if superior trapezius. Outter tip of shoulder if supraspinatus. Lateral upper arm if deltoid. Rest/heat/acupunc/massage for muscle spasm. Cortisone for "pain honeymoon" enabling yoga & aqua-pt. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Peroneus Longus: The peroneus longus is a tendon that runs down the outside of your calf to the arch of your foot. Tendonitis here can lead to lateral ankle/foot pain and can have many causes. It is often treated with oral medications, physical therapy, orthotics, rest or often a combination of these modalities. Read more
Rest...: Tendonitis, depending on the location, is usually treated best with rest and anti-inflammatory medications (motrin, aleve, (naproxen) etc). Some tendons can be injected with rapid relief, but that does have some risk as well. See your doctor and come up with a good plan. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is there something I can do to recover from tendonitis and get the painful symptoms under control?
Start with RICE: Tendonitis (inflammed tendon) commonly results from overuse. Start treatment w/ rice, nsaid, stretch/ strength prog (pt or ot), & consider couterforce bracing. Massage may also help. If these treatments fail you may be a candidate for cortisone/ prp injections. Few people end up needing surgery. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had biceps tendonitis for 5 years. After pt, rest, meds, still not better and experience the same symptoms as day 1. Am I missing something?
Biceps tendon: Usually represents tendinosis or disease of the tendon. Not inflamed. Would exercise doing an eccentric loading program. If no improvement consider diagnostic ultrasound or MRI of area. If significant tendinosis or partial tear consider prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma injection, or surgery.
