    I have minor tendinitis in my knee from tennis. Ow.
  3. Figjam:

    The doctor said: That he couldn't play, until he feel Ok. They don't know went he will be ready, this could be a month or six month.
  4. hey man, i am suffering from tendonitus, and the best thing to do is too take breaks after every song, and warm up and down before and after playing.

    he should go to a specialist and get his 'techique' checked out and see what they think. tendonitus isn't that serious, if you take of it probably.

    Also get a hold of some Ibueprofen (sp), its an antinflammetry drug, DO NOT TAKE aspirin or pain killers.

    g'luck with this! rest a lot, hope he gets better soon. :)
  5. Thanks Microbass.

    Ice the area for 20 minutes 2-3 times a day, especially after activity. Warm up very slowly and stop when he feels pain. A splint durng off times would help as well. Motrin OTC 400mg three times a day is also good.

    If you have trouble understanding this maybe Dave Costello will translate, si?

  7. Thanks Mike!

    I understand everything!!!

    I know taking pain killers isn't a good idea, but why not aspirin? It is an antiinflammatory too.

    Asprin is an antipyretic and also inhibits clot formation. So, in a soft tissue injury it can actually cause more swelling and internal bleeding.

    Cool! Thanks for the info, Mike. I am a big fan of aspirin, but I will remember not to take it for soft tissue injuries.
