Saturday, 12 April 2014 01:58 AM

Tendons are fibrous tissues that attach muscles to bones. Any inflammation in tendons is called tendinitis or tendonitis. When tendinitis starts, the inflamed joint starts feeling tender. This is followed by severe pain that makes movement difficult. Apart from pain and tenderness of the joint, symptoms of tendonitis include swelling and redness. Repetitive movements of the joint, lifting heavy weights, severe injury, or falls can usually cause tendinitis. Though drugs and medications are available for treating this joint inflammation, natural home remedies can relieve pain in tendinitis. The list of common home remedies for tendinitis or tendonitis is provided below.

Top Home Remedies for Tendonitis

Numerous natural home remedies are available for tendinitis that can relieve pain and other symptoms of tendonitis without any side effect. Let us examine the best home remedies.
  • Herbs: Symptoms of tendonitis like pain in the joints or tenderness and swelling can be treated using herbal treatments. These herbs, which can be used directly or as powdered extracts or capsules, can be used as natural remedies for tendinitis. Turmeric is an herb useful for reducing pain in inflamed tendons. Licorice is another natural home remedy used for countering tendonitis pain. However, pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult the doctor before using herbs as home remedies for tendonitis.
  • Olive oil: Olive oil helps relieve pain and tenderness or even swelling in the inflamed tendons, especially in foot tendonitis. A hot or warm olive oil massage of the inflamed tendon is a natural way to reduce pain in tendinitis.
