...Tendinitis Blues...

Tendinitis - Inflammation in or around, a tendon - can be painful. Where simple muscle soreness is temporary, tendinitis is soreness that doesn't quit. It's like here today, here tomorrow, here to stay.

Here are some soothing remedies:

1. Give it a rest. If tendinitis is a side effect of your job, it might not be a bad idea to save a day or two of vacation for those times when tendinitis is painfully persistent.

2. Brace yourself - A little extra support and warmth from a flexible brace or wrap.

3. Elevate - raising the affected area is also good for controlling swelling.

4. Strengthen - the affected area with little weights that you can lift at home.

5. When all of the above fail, go over the counter. Anti - inflammatory drugs are effective temporary pain relievers for tendinitis. This will also reduce inflammation and swelling.
