Tendonitis is the swelling or irritation of a tendon, which is a thick cord that connects your bone to a muscle. If you are suffering from the pain of Tendonitis, Dr. Stuart Feldman has a way of helping you treat the cause and solve the problem.
Tendonitis usually forms when there is repetitive, minor impact on the affected area or a sudden injury that is more serious. Many factors, like poor posture at work and poor stretching and conditioning, can cause Tendonitis in the foot. This is a painful condition that can cause the loss of motion. In order to avoid this health condition, take activities slow at first and then gradually move up to regular participation, use limited force and repetitions, and stop the activity if unusual pain occurs. If you want to treat Tendonitis, Dr. Feldman suggests that you avoid activities that aggravate the problem, ice the area of pain as soon as you get the injury, rest, and take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs. If your pain does not get better within a week, come into Dr. Stuart Feldman’s office for more advanced treatments. Those treatments could include corticosteroid injections, immobilization, or physical therapy.
