Ways to Help Heal Tendonitis (Tendinitis)

Tendonitis is the inflammation of tendons, which are thick fibrous cords that connect muscles to bones. This condition would happen anywhere in the body, but it tends to show up in your heels, wrists, knees, and shoulders. In some cases, it would last only several days, but severe cases would last longer and might result in many other health issues that would affect your daily life. Fortunately, there are many ways to deal with this condition, from prescription drugs to home remedies and lifestyle changes. Check out this list of the top 10 tendonitis treatments.


A simple yet effective way to alleviate tendonitis symptoms is to take a rest and give these parts enough time to heal. Avoid any stressful and high-impact activities such as playing tennis or running. Instead, go for lower-impact ones such as biking, swimming, or walking, which are still active but do not affect your tendons. In more severe cases, it is better to rest the areas completely to speed up the healing process. After a couple of days of resting fully, start moving gently to avoid stiffness. [1]
