What types of activities should be avoided if I have tendinitis?

Your doctor will recommend specific activities that you may need to avoid or modify, depending on the type and severity of your condition. Generally, it is best to avoid any exercise that causes pain in the affected area or increases inflammation. We also recommend avoiding activities that involve repetitive motions.

What is the best way to prevent tendinitis?

A good prevention strategy is to warm up with stretching before engaging in physical activities in Central Ohio. You should take frequent breaks when participating in repetitive motions and maintain a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and adequate rest. If your job or sport requires lots of repetition, try to vary the motion or switch sides often.
