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. ...Read more

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.

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 more
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.

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Try placing a heel: Lift in both shoes to preload the tendon and not make it work so hard, soak in hot water and Epsom salt or apply ice (either can work) I would consider a night splint to help stretch the tendon. Massage helps. If you ot for a doctor visit they can prescribe topical meds that are helpful, some physical therapy modalities help like ultrasound, laser or low energy shockwave. ...Read more
Yes, Treatments are: Prolotherapy typically by itself will cause ligaments to tighten up, usually due to scarring or fibrosis of the ligaments. However now prolotherapy is used to introduce new blood supply to the area and then many times following it with the prp and/or stem cells in the area can repair the tissue/ligaments by the hopes that the stem cells regenerate the same normal tissue type.

Yes: Throwing any ball can potentially cause tendonitis. Tendonitis of the shoulder can occur as a result of a variety of reasons.
