Tendinitis: Diagnosis and natural treatments

Tendonitis is common among athletes. Its diagnosis must be early and the treatment adapted. Alternative medicine occupies a large part in its treatment, which must be as comprehensive as possible and not only symptomatic.

Tendinitis corresponds to an overwork of a tendon which then becomes no longer able to respond to demand. It inflames or tears: it is then tendonitis or tendinous tear. The diagnosis of tendinitis is not difficult for a doctor accustomed to this type of pathology. On the other hand, the treatment is complex and tendonitis is willingly capricious.

A doctor will advise you on a classic curative treatment comprising:

– the decrease in physical activities depending on the severity and the pain felt

– raising heel or visco-elastic polymer sole, patella knee pad

– physiotherapy can be used for its analgesic effect: ultrasound, ionisation, laser, shock waves, stretching, muscle strengthening

– systemic anti-inflammatories given for the shortest time possible to avoid toxicity to the stomach.

– mesotherapy, 1 session per week, for 3 weeks

– infiltration (as little as possible because it can weaken the tendon).

– surgery in stubborn cases (more than 12 months of evolution) or in demanding athletes (professionals, etc.)

Essential osteopathy

Osteopathy treats joint blockages that disrupt the movement of the joint and in fact result in tension on the tendons. Once the joint has regained its balance, the tendon and the muscle no longer have any reason to contract unnecessarily or excessively. The osteopath reharmonizes the movements of the joint and thus often shortens the healing time of this tendonitis.

Finally, in order to avoid the recurrence of tendonitis, it is important to respect a certain lifestyle: drink well during exercise, eat well, reduce the intake of dairy products and red meat, take regular care of your teeth, and above all respect the regularity and progressiveness of the training.
