If you have symptoms of tendinitis, see your doctor to rule out other causes of pain such as these:
Go to an emergency department for evaluation if you experience the following:
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has been shown to have good results in calcific tendinitis or other forms of tendinitis. Currently, it is still being studied.
Ultrasound therapy is used in some cases, but its effect has not been proven. Its greatest usefulness may be in calcific tendinitis.
Your doctor may give you follow-up instructions with other specialists and physical therapists.
With treatment and if you follow your doctor's instructions, pain and swelling should go away after a few days without further problems.
Recurrences can occur if there is continued overuse, but use of splints, proper technique during exercise, and muscle strengthening exercises can usually help.
Surgical decompression may be necessary if there is chronic inflammation causing other complications.
