I do know that NSAIDs also reduce imflammation... So I wonder if any of you have taken 800 mg prescrip ibu 2-3 times for a similar imflammation situation.
My doc said the same thing. Do PT for 6 weeks. So far PT is working out, the pain isn't as bad. I feel my shoulder is a lot stronger. Make sure you put ice after each session of tennis.
