Tendonitis treatment (for performance)

Answered on August 19, 2014

So I have an overuse injury of tendinitis. What will allow it to heal properly and the fastest (ignoring pain)? My question is purely pertaining to performance not overall health. I am training for a race. Should I take IBProfen or let my body do its thing?

I know NSAIDs are evil but for the next month my focus is performance. Thanks

You may consider positional release therapy. I had a boat load of issues after knee surgery, but many of them are subsiding because of this treatment. It's strangely simple and painless. The gist is that injuries cause compensation or degradation of tissues, so after time, the body learns the 'new', not necessarily better, mechanics of movement. This treatment addresses the neuromuscular response by reprogramming inhibited muscles to relax so that they can operate correctly. Often times, tendonitis is caused by improper joint alignment, which is a result of inhibited muscles.

Cory, is there a title or name for this type of treatment (besides 'near torture')? Any direction you can point me in would be appreciated!

Acupressure worked for my bicep tendonitis, find someone who very experienced in this. My guy can hold a standard scale in each hand and squeeze 100 pounds of pressure for 60 seconds.

Consider yourself warned though as the pain of having a guy put that kind of thumb pressure on an already sensitive tendon for 20 min to an hour is a borderline interrogation technique. Having said that after 3 visits I am here before you free of tendonitis.

Above comment on Acupressure is a good suggestion. Find someone experienced in acupressure or active release.

Personally, I had recurring achilles tendonitis for several years that has been cured with acupuncture. I am a runner and haven't suffered with my achilles tendons in years.
