Tendinitis is a chronic condition characterized
by the inflammation of a tendon and causes severe pain and limited mobility. The worsening of tendinitis happens due to
the muscular overload—the repetition of movements. It also occurs due to aging. Some of the most common symptoms of tendinitis
are: tenderness in the joints, muscle stiffness and pain in the affected muscles, especially
at night. The treatment to relieve tendinitis is a combination
of oral remedies with topical ointments. Even with the use of analgesic and anti-inflammatory
drugs as part of the treatment of tendinitis, it’s also possible to use more natural alternatives
that help relieve the symptoms. Here are seven natural ways to treat tendinitis
and relieve its symptoms: 1. Ice Therapy Applying ice packs is a great option to relieve
the inflammation and pain caused by tendinitis. Ice therapy stimulates circulation in the
affected region by relieving tension and stiffness in the tendon. How to apply it? Take some ice cubes and wrap them in a towel
or plastic bag. Apply the ice to the region affected by tendinitis. Massage gently for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this application up to 3 times daily. 2. Warm water therapy It’s also possible to treat tendinitis with
the application of warm water. Warm water helps increase body temperature,
causing blood flow to increase as well. Warm water baths help you relax and also help
relax the muscles with tendinitis. How to do it? Soak in warm water and relax for 20 minutes. To complete the treatment, you can add essential
oils or Epsom salt in the bath to help you relax even more. 3. White willow tea White willow has anti-inflammatory and sedative
properties which are crucial for treating the symptoms of tendinitis. So, white willow tea relieves swelling and
stiffness, which are recurrent symptoms of tendinitis. Here’s how to prepare the tea: Ingredients 1 tablespoon white willow
1 cup water Instructions Put the white willow in a cup of boiling water
for 10 minutes and let it steep. Strain the tea and drink it at the first sign
of pain. It’s possible to drink the tea up to three
times a day. 4. Turmeric The active compound of turmeric is called
curcumin and has an anti-inflammatory and soothing effect that effectively controls
tendinitis. Turmeric is very versatile and can be used
orally and locally, applying it to the area affected by tendinitis. How to make a turmeric compress? To make a turmeric compress, simply mix two
tablespoons of turmeric powder in half a liter of hot water and make a compress with a cloth. Apply to the area with tendinitis and leave
it for 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat the application twice a day. 5. Arnica Arnica is a plant that’s well-known for
its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to relieve pain. The plant also controls swelling in the inflamed
regions. Therefore, arnica is crucial in combating
tendinitis, as well as other diseases related to muscle inflammation such as arthritis. How to apply arnica correctly? There are many options in the market for lotions,
creams and topical arnica solutions. You can make a compress from the plant or
apply an arnica cream to the area affected by tendinitis. Use continuously until the inflammation is
controlled. 6. Apple cider vinegar Apple cider vinegar has anti-inflammatory
properties and also helps to improve circulation. Because of this, it’s highly recommended
for the treatment of tendinitis. How to apply apple cider vinegar? Make an apple cider vinegar compress to best
apply it to the area with tendinitis. Mix apple cider vinegar and warm water in
equal parts and apply it by placing compresses over the area with tendinitis. Leave the compress for 20 minutes and then
remove it. Repeat this application up to 3 times a day. 7. Aloe vera Aloe vera has small crystals that have soothing
properties and give a refreshing sensation to the skin, which makes it a great ally in
the treatment of tendinitis. In addition, aloe vera is easily absorbed. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that
help treat the affected area. How to use aloe vera? Using aloe vera to treat tendinitis is easy. Simply rub the exposed part of the leaf on
the areas affected by tendinitis. Leave the aloe vera on the skin for 30 minutes
and rinse with cold water. You can apply it 2 or 3 times a day. We know that treating tendinitis takes time
and can be tiring. That’s why we’ve taught you about these
remedies to help you in your treatment. Choose the recipe that would be the best match

  1. This is how I've been feeling these few day I couldn't even move at night it was horrible pain this video sure helps me out a lot 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼❤️❤️👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻thank you!

  2. There may be good advice around on treating tendinopathy but also a lot of distractions which are essentially mumbo jumbo. I think it is pretty clear which this video is.

  3. How about a CURE! Futsing around with ointments and compresses two to three times a day is just NOT practical for MOST humans! It also seems like B.S. I guarantee you that you can use ALL the remedies above, perhaps with the exception of HOT/COLD treatments, and see no or minimal results. Better to engage in something oral and physical (exercises, yoga, meditation, etc.) to relax and strengthen the body/mind. Or you can screw around with topical solutions and baths all you want if you're RETIRED and have nothing else to do. It will certainly KEEP you OCCUPIED!

  4. Here is a definite cure:
    1)Fill your tub with warm water, add bath salts if you so desire.
    2) kneel down beside your tub and gently sink your head under the water until it touches your shoulders and hold that position for 20 minutes.
    3) Congratulations you have just cured everything.

  5. Right now I'm In MAJOR pain.
    I have it in my left shoulder, neck and BOTH wrist… all at the same time.
    How is this possible???

  6. Right now I only feel pain in my shoulder when throwing a baseball
    That’s the only time it bothers me. What could it be?

  7. There are some good points in this video but it's not complete… Warm water is good, (hot water is even better, around 100-105F or 38-41C) but you have to continue with cold water afterwards to get shock effect. Otherwise it isn't that effective. Turmeric is good, yes, but it becomes a lot of efficient when it's combined with Glucosamine and MSM. Try adding some turmeric so a bone broth, that'd be packed with good minerals for your tendons.

  8. Greenlipped mussel and CBD has started working wonders for me!! Have to insist in the beginning: it has been approx 2 months into my experiment. So it is not like an anti inflammatory that workers straight away. But it is a lot healthier!! Thank you for your suggestions. I invite anybody crying out all this is BS, to do their own research and come up with other possibilities. Or take your anti inflammatoires…..if that is what you prefer. Happy stomach ulcer to you!

  9. I'm dealing with shoulder tendonitus now and it's the most painful thing I've ever dealt with! It's debilitating! Especially since it's my right shoulder that's hurt so I can't do anything. It hurts to move at all! I hope these remedies can give me some relief.

  10. You are right this won't cure chronic tendonitus and it will help those in the first stages and may keep it from getting worse!

  11. I'd like to see something that vinegar doesnt supposedly fix. I'm sure you can find a vinegar cure for AIDS if you google it.

  12. 1. Take time of work and physical hobbies that use the tendon. 2. Stretch muscles surounding the effected area to increase blood flow and ease the joints. 3 take arnica lots. 4 have hot baths before bed but not right when the first inflammation occurs use the bath as a catalyst for blood flow during the healing process. 5 take turmeric before bed. 6 take small amounts of collidal silver. Proceed for anywere between 1 to 5 months depending on the severity of your tendonitis before you give up if it still hasn't gone expression your concern to the doctor that you have done everything and it might need a closer look. Learn why it ocured in the first place to prevent from ever happening use it as a learning curv.

  13. Ugh. Willow bark just contains a less-safe version of aspirin. Screw white willow tea, just take aspirin. Safer, easier, and possibly cheaper.
