Oral Steroids For Tendonitis
I'm 17 yr F with horrible iliopsoas tendonitis in R hp. Treating since 2 yrs including modalities and steroid but no help. Any suggestions?
US giuded Rx: The iliopsoas tendon/bursa can be difficult areas to treat. Although you say you had "steroid" therapy did you ever have an ultrasound guided injection (USGI) into the area involved? Ultrasound can help the MD "see" exactly where the injection should go. You may wish to talk to your Family MD to find out who, in your community, can do USGI. ...Read more
Steroid: That depends on where the injection is done. If it is near the achilles tendon, you have to be careful how much is used and how often. In other areas - say a shoulder - there shouldn't be a problem with the achilles. See your treating physician. ...Read more
I'm 17 f got steroid shot for iliopsoas tendonitis 5 weeks ago. 35% better. Still can't sit comfortably. Should I consider a 2nd shot? Any side effects?
I'm 17 f having iliopsoas tendonitis for 1.5 yrs. Tried nsaids, pt, and steroid shots. Not keen on surgery. Any suggestions? Streching is too painful.
Maybe.: Usually tendinitis in this area is self limited, but u need to stop doing any activity/exercise that aggravates the condition. Stretching is a must and can be facilitated by taking a hot bath/spa b4, and icing after, working with a massage therapist to do deep soft tissue massage. You may consider accupuncture and e-stim if you haven't tried those. Hang in there! ...Read more

I had a steroid injection in my knee 2 weeks ago and it's more painful now than it was before. Was to treat patella tendonitis. Should it be?
Further evaluation: I rarely ever recommend a steroid injection for a patellar tendon problem. The steroid can weaken the tendon and make it more prone to rupture. Also, steroid injections only work if there is associated inflammation. If inflammation is not present, then these injections may have more risk than benefit. I would consider obtaining a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

I have a deQuervain's tendinitis on my left hand for 4months. I tried physiotherapy, pills, no much improvement. Will go in time whithout steroid shot?
Tendinitis: Hello. It's hard to tell whether it'll improve on its own or not over time. It may but usually it requires that the affected wrist be given rest and no aggravation occurs. If you are going to be using it, then it's unlikely to resolve quickly. Iontophoresis, unless tried already, may be something to consider. That's especially popular outside of the US. Lidocaine and Hydrocortisone are used. ...Read more
Have chronic tendonitis 3yrs, can't take steroids or nsaids, tylenol (acetaminophen) does nothing! Pt made pain worse. Can't sleep!
Take it easy:
In general the best way to deal with tendonitis which is an inflamed tendon is rest. When an individual over does an activity whether at
work or with exercise, the tendon can become inflamed which can
cause pain, inflammation, warmth and limit use of the affected area
due to the above. The best initial treatment is to avoid the offending
activity, use ice, nsaids and take it easy. ...Read more
Start with RICE: Tendonitis (inflammed tendon) commonly results from overuse. In order to treat the pain, I recommend you start with rice, oral/ topical/ injected anti-inflammatories, follow with stretching/ strengthening (therapy), & consider couterforce bracing. Massage may also help. If these treatments fail you may be a candidate for cortisone or prp injections. Few people end up needing surgery. ...Read more
Many treatments: Tendonitis usually responds to many measures at once. The first (and most obvious) thing to do is to rest the injured area. Ice may decrease swelling. Tylenol (acetaminophen) and nsaids may help with the pain. Gentle stretching can help. If this doesn't provide relief after a couple of weeks, seek evaluation by your doctor. ...Read more

Lots of things: Tendinitis means "inflamed tendon". So we treat inflammations with reducing the activity that is stressing the tendon, ice after activity and a few times a day, nsaids, stretching the muscle associated with the tendonitis, some can be helped with bracing, some requires physical therapy, and it is extremely rare that they require surgery, . ...Read more
To Know A Sinew...: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh yes!!! Definitely. They don't heal well especially if you have to use them a lot. They don't get much blood supply, that's why. If it's been that long and nothing you have tried (if any) has helped, then you need to see a doctor, preferably one who specializes in that area of the body. At this point you may need some special care, but don't lose heart. It can be fixed. ...Read more
Tendonitis Quick Fix: Usually step #3 or 4 is corticosteroid injection into the tendon sheath. If its urgent or really painful you may want to go directly to a steroid shot (but not for achilles tendonitis where rupture is always of concern). If injected, then protection is even more important such as splinting, if possible - can't do that easily for a shoulder. Follow-up in 10-14 days. An imaging study may be needed. ...Read more
