Top Ways to Improve Tendinitis

Tendinitis is a very painful condition that is caused by the irritation or inflammation of a tendon. Often, repetitive motions can lead to the development of this condition, including shoveling, tennis, gardening, painting, pitching, and even cleaning the house. Tendinitis can affect anyone, but adults who are over the age of 40 are more likely to suffer from the condition, simply because tendons become less elastic and flexible as they age.

Tendinitis can appear in any tendons throughout the body, but it most commonly affects the elbow, hip, shoulder, knee, Achilles tendon, and the base of the thumb. The most common symptoms of the condition include pain directly at the affected site and the area surrounding the site, and restricted movement in the area. Here are the top ways to improve the painful condition.

Build Your Activity Level Gradually

Although it may be tempting to completely discontinue all physical activity that causes discomfort to the tendons, it is very important to continue exercising and remaining physically active. If deciding to become completely sedentary because of the pain caused by tendinitis, then the condition will not improve and it may actually get worse. If not already physically active, then it is important to adopt a fitness regimen.

Before starting any fitness regimen, it is very important to take it slowly and gradually build up an activity level as the body allows. If overdone in the beginning, then one is much more likely to injure yourself further and cause even more pain to the body. Instead, start out very slowly and only increase the activity level when you are perfectly comfortable performing very simple exercises and movements. Avoid movements that are repetitive or require excessive force.

If there is any discomfort or unusual pain while exercising, discontinue the exercise immediately and do not return to it until the body has become stronger.

Consult a Health Professional

In order to make sure that there is no further injury to the body, it is important to consult with a health professional that is familiar with symptoms and treatment options for tendinitis. A health professional or health coach may be able to suggest very specific exercises that will help slowly regain strength and decrease the symptoms of tendinitis. They will also be able to suggest healthy dietary choices that will give the muscles and tendons the support that they need in order to remain strong and healthy.
