Tendinitis treatment in New Jersey and New York
Tendinitis is the inflammation of the tendon. That typically occurs through sports and is common among athletes. It can affect areas such as your elbow, thigh, wrists, and Achilles. While it can occur at any age, it is more common among adults and particularly those who engage with sports often.
Treatment of tendinitis typically revolves around rest. This is to allow the inflammation to reduce. Sometimes, your doctor may recommend hot and cold treatments as well as Over The Counter (OTC) painkillers as well.
