If you have tendon pain, the chances are you don’t really understand the concepts of load and capacity. Nature offers a smorgasboard of stresses and pressures to help you screw up your tendons. I think someone once said suffering is good for the soul, and tendons believed them . Tensile, compressive, and shearing loads can get a tendon pain party well and truly on the way!
According to the tales of “old housewives” and the assurances of hippies, food does have a supportive role in helping tendon pain resolve itself.
There are famous anti-inflammatory foods that, when combined with a healthier lifestyle and actually doing specific exercises, really, really helps.
Many of you know that I have fascination with pain and in particular chronic pain and the role that inflammation can play.
I see a lot of people in muscular pain and in particular those with tendonitis, tendinopathy or tendinosis (same thing, different words)
The reality is that there are lots of things you can do to ease pain and promote recovery or at the least , stop it getting worse .What I have noticed is that people who take an active role in their recovery , get better sooner.
