Yes: Most of the time tendinitis is treated conservatively with nsaids (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen) and lots of rest. Ice, compression, and elevation of the leg can help. Physical therapy may be recommended to stretch and strengthen the tendon. Gradually increase physical activity to keep the tendon flexible. Full recovery usually takes a few weeks. For very severe injuries, you may need surgery. ...Read more

you certainly should try to do before you get
any significant tears in the rotator cuff ...Read more
Few days treatment for wrist tendinitis & now can do the thumb test with little pain & more mobility. Can I go back to lifting weights now? Advice? Tnx
Weight training: A general rule after tendonitis or joint irritation has resolved is to go back at half load and half repetition. Wearing a glove or soft splint and avoiding the positions that previously caused irritation is important as well as knowing what may have set the problem off in the first place. Mechanics become even more important. Speak with a trainer, or PT and your doctor to clarlfy things ...Read more

Not that simple: Treatment for achilles tendinitis varies with the location of the pain along the tendon, the duration, the cause, and your activity level. Giving you a "schedule" for stretching not knowing these factors would be unwise. In addition, the achilles has a poor blood supply. If you have injured this, ice may actually delay the healing process. Please have this examined by a specialist. ...Read more
Stop hurting it.: Achilles tendonitis can be a very frustrating condition to treat. The speed of improvement is slower than the patient is willing to wait on. So many times, the inflammation is treated and not the cause of the inflammation process. The idea is to get more blood to the tendon without adding more injury. I find the best way is moist heat applied to the area and often. Use a Cam walker for protection. ...Read more
I'm 18 yo F. I suffer from iliopsoas tendinitis from 3 yrs. It is not getting better with any form of therapy. Any suggestion? Arthroscopy?
Osteopath exam: 18/f w. "Anterotated hips & snapping hip" told "iliopsoas tendinitis", which is a theoretical & unproven theory. A subluxing sacroiliac joint is more likely & proven to generate this type of sound. Study Hypermobitity Syndrome & Beighton Criteria. For soft tissue disorders see Osteopaths. Avoid Chiropractors, who are not skilled diagnosticians. Massage therapists should not be making diagnoses. ...Read more
I was in MVA. MRI shows Rotator cuff tear, labra tear and tendinitis on shoulder. EMG shows pinched nerve. Will Physical Therapy help and how long?

Later on, rehab is used when healing has started but timing is up to the surgeon. ...Read more

What therapy or surgery is best for a full thickness tear of my infraspinatus tendon measuring 1cm transversely with tendon retracted by approximately?
Surgery: Unless you are a very low demand, inactive person, surgery would certainly be better. When you have a partial tear of the rotator cuff, the ends are still approximated and therapy can help with the healing process. In a complete tear the ends retract and they will never heal unless repaired. An elderly person can have them scar down and have some function, but most people better with repair. ...Read more
Multiple treatments: Studies have shown that short term (the first 6 months) cortisone injections are the most effective treatment for pain. However, symptoms often come back if not treated with exercise prescription. Long-term studies (1 year out) show physical therapy to have the best outcomes. Off-loader bracing also has been shown to help. Treatment such as prp or surgery are only indicated if these don't work. ...Read more
