Re: Any tips for dealing with tendonitis?
I found that I hve tendonitis in both of my arms but before I knew that I had literally crushed my right arm in an accident at work...one thing that I was told over and over in therapy was to stretch the tendons of that arm by placing the affected palm and forearm flat and facing down on a table (or flat surface) and slowly bring my arm off of the table, leaving the palm flat on the table to the point where my fingers are at a right angle to the forearm and hold it there a few seconds until there is little pain as you increase the time held there.
The other thing you should do is lay off of that arm/hand and let the pain subside Then after a day or two of no pain, follow the above slowly and cautiously add the stretches.
I found I had tendonitis in both arms after I had disassembled/maintained some machines at work...after about a week, it went away and I resumed the stretches. I was fine since...have you had a Dr. check the extent of it ?
