    What is Tendonitis?

    Before we get into some homeopathic remedies for tendonitis, we should look into what it is and what the symptoms are. This will help us better understand the problem and how it was caused.

    Tendonitis, also known as tendinitis, is a condition resulting in the inflammation of a tendon and the ligaments that attach it to the bone. Tendonitis can involve several areas of the body. The most common sites are usually the shoulder, ankle, elbow and knee. Tendonitis can be split up into three main categories: Acute, Chronic and Calcific. Calcific tendonitis happens when there are calcium deposits that build up in the joints.

    The symptoms of tendonitis may include the hot feeling of the involved area, swelling, tenderness, pain with movement, or joint cracking/popping. Generally tendonitis can be caused by repetitive movements, overuse, heavy lifting, injury or even an underlying medical problem or disorder.

    There are several ways a person can ease the pain of tendonitis while repairing some of the damage. Homeopathic remedies for tendonitis are among the affordable and easiest to use options. Other methods might include massage therapy, TENS therapy and physical therapy.
