Treatment of Tendonitis
Treatment of tendonitis involves resting the involved tendon and decreasing inflammation.

Resting the involved tendon through avoidance of increased activity or even immobilizing the area is the first mode of treatment.

Steroid injections provided by your physician or non steroidal anti inflammatory medications can directly decrease inflammation and the pain associated with tendonitis.

Physical therapy to gently stretch and strengthen the affected tendon is vital to recovering and preventing future tendonitis episodes.
