Is it really tendinitis or tendonosis???

Before you embark on a treatment regimen, you first have identify what you really have.

Tendinitis and tendonosis are two different things and require different treatment.

Tendonosis is a severe complication of tendinitis. While tendinitis requires at most two weeks of rest, tendonosis may require months or years of rehabilitation.

Tendonosis started out as tendinitis. It became tendonosis because you continued to use your arm in spite of the pain. You only stopped when you can no longer lift a cup of coffee, turn a doorknob, shake a hand, or hold your tennis racket. at this point, severe tendon damage has been done.

Recommendations:
- Research tendonosis
- research friction massage
