Natural Remedies for Tendonitis

A tendon is the end part of a muscle that attaches the muscle to the bone, tendons are  more dense and stiff than the muscle itself this makes them susceptible to a low level of tearing at a microscopic level.  This tearing produces the inflammation and irritation known as tendonitis.  Tendonitis is usually seen after excessive repetitive movement - for example, a tennis player may over - use the muscles of the elbow.  The most common tendon areas that become inflamed are the elbow, wrist, biceps, shoulder, leg, knee, ankle, hip, and Achilles.
Symptoms can vary from an achy pain and stiffness to the local area of the tendon, to a burning that surrounds the whole joint.  The pain is usually worse during and after activity, and the tendon and joint area can become stiffer the following day.

Natural Tendonitis Treatment

With proper care, the pain should lessen over a few weeks, in severe cases it can take over a year to heal - after 6 months this condition is considered chronic and is much more difficult to treat.  It is important to loosen up the tendon, lessen the pain, and minimize any inflammation. 

MSM for Tendonitis

MSM is a natural supplement that heals tissue at a cellular level and has anti-inflammatory effects.  MSM has a leading role in helping to alleviate pain.   It adds flexibility and permeability to cell membranes, facilitating fluid and nutrient transport in and out of cells (and the release of trapped toxins). It also has the effect of softening tissue, helping to equalise pressure on cells.   So MSM is a perfect natural remedy for Tendonitis.

Serrapeptase for Tendonitis

Serrapeptase digests inflammation in all forms  It has had wide clinical use, spanning over twenty-five years throughout Europe and Asia.  It is a viable, natural alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen and the more potent NSAIDs. Unlike these drugs, Serrapeptase  is a naturally occurring, physiologic agent with no inhibitory effects on prostaglandins and is devoid of gastrointestinal side effects.   It is a natural treatment for all types of pain including Tendonitis.
Organic Silicon for Tendonitis
There are many silica and silicon supplements on the market, but we believe that the Organic Silicon G5 is unique in its therapeutic ability to replenish the system with sufficient silicon to allow the body to accomplish its own healing.
Please note that cortisone injections are very caustic and can cause a weakening of the tendon structure and a create more scar tissue.
