Why do I only get tendonitis in the morning?

Probably tendonosis: Usually what you are describing is tendonosis, not tendonitis. This is not necessarily acute inflammation, but chronically damaged, scarred tendons. With rest, the scarred tendons lose their flexibility and become tender. With mobility and stretching, this gradually improves.

How come I get tendonitis in the morning?

How come I get tendonitis in the morning?

Because: Joint pain and stiffness as well as other arthritic conditions are often worse in the morning due to being inacitve for a period a time while you were sleeping. This could be a sign of inflammatory arthritis which you should evaluated if it does not improve.

The bottom heel of my left foot really hurts to step on first thing in the morning (or after activity).Have achillies tendonitis on right. Same thing?

No: Most likely it is plantar fasciitis. Achilles tendinitis has pain mostly on the back of the heel. Although chronic Achilles tendinitis may lead to plantar fasciitis. Need to see a podiatrist for evaluation and treatment.

I have pain at the back of my heel, little above the arch. And I have pain in the morning. Especially the first few steps. Is it Achilles tendonitis?

I have pain at the back of my heel, little above the arch. And I have pain in the morning. Especially the first few steps. Is it Achilles tendonitis?

Plantar Fasciitis: Pain on the bottom of the heel near the arch which hurts in the morning is the classic symptom of plantar fasciitis, which differs from achilles tendonitis. There are many excellent treatments for this and I recommend you see a podiatrist for evaluation and treatment.

How do I recover from tendonitis and get the painful symptoms under control?

Rest and meds: Rest and anti-inflammatory medications are the mainstay of tendinitis treatment. However, there are other things your doctor can do as well as make sure the diagnosis is correct. I recommend seeing an orthopedic surgeon.

How can I recover from tendonitis and get the painful symptoms under control?

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.

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.

How do I get patellar tendonitis?

Inflammed tendon: Chronic inflammation of the patella tendon, commonly known as "jumper's knee". This is typically considered an overuse injury but can be exacerbated by hamstring tightness. Typical treatment options consist of rice, antiinflammatories, physical thearpy, counterbrace supports, massage, injections. For more info http://drmarkgalland.

How could I get rid of patellar tendonitis?

How could I get rid of patellar tendonitis?

Listen to your body: Start by decreasing any aggravating activity. Ice the area 20 min 3 times a day and try some over the counter anti-inflammatories. Exercises to stretch the tendon and strengthen surrounding structures are probably most important. A patellar tendon strap may also help- get one at a local pharmacy. If none of these help see your doc- you may benefit from pt. Sometimes foot mechanics contribute too.

How can I get rid of tendonitis?

Few things to do: Depending in where is your tendinitis, but few general things: good range of motion, stretching, use of elbow-strap, avoid the "traumatic activities" that caused your tendinitis and use motrin/aleve may help. If not better, consult doc for eval of alterative treatment--different meds, physical therapy, and/or possible cortisone injection. Shockwave therapy may help. Good luck.

Is it possible to get an ultrasound for tendonitis?

Yes: An ultrasound can examine many tendons that are traditionally examined with an mri. We can often see tendinitis, calcifications, and tears. However, it doesn't tend to change our management of the tendinitis.

Should you get a cortisone injection for tendonitis?

Should you get a cortisone injection for tendonitis?

Sometimes: Tendinopathies are usually treated conservatively. They will respond to relative rest or bracing, medications (anti-inflammatories) and then exercises. Occasionally, they do not get better and then an injection may be helpful.

Why doesn't my wrist tendonitis seem to get better when I stay off of it?

It depends: It may be that the injury is actually more serious than tendonitis and thus is not responding to rest. It is also possible that even though you are resting it, it is still being used daily in everyday activities that prevent full healing. A temporary brace or cast immobilization may be required. If your pain is persistent or not improving, I recommend seeking orthopedic medical evaluation.
