What about a one-time “tendonopathy” - how does that differ from tendonitis?
That happened to me and that’s what the dr said it was - no imaging done.
"Tendinopathy refers to a disease of a tendon. The clinical presentation includes tenderness on palpation and pain, often when exercising or with movement. Three terms have evolved in the medical terminology to refer to injuries that cause tendon pain: Tendinitis - acute tendon injury accompanied by inflammation."
Girlie- Tendonitis, Tendonosis, and Tendinopathy are pretty much the same, just different time frames I believe. Most Drs dont even use the terms correctly. The end result is the same - inflamed tendons that harden, and can sometimes become chronic.
Ive delt with these for 30 years. Sometimes cortisone shots help, but not always. I just treated them with the ways I learned in holistic muscle and tendon release - Active Release Technique which I learned from from chiros/pt's/clinicians working on me. Then I follow up with Arnica Montana ans magnessium gel. This is the only way tendons ever healed for me.
What the above does is provide circulation, once a tendon hardens, there is minimal circulation so it wont heal.Hmmm - I doubt mine was that then - I woke up one morning with it - excruciating pain - then it just got better over the next several days. Didn’t do any PT on it -
Maybe mine was just bart inflaming it ?
