What are Tendonitis and Tenosynovitis?

Tendons are strong cords of tissue that connect muscles to bones. Tendonitis is when a tendon is inflamed. It can happen to any tendon in the body. When a tendon is inflamed, it can cause swelling, pain, and discomfort. Another problem called tenosynovitis is linked to tendonitis. This is the inflammation of the lining of the tendon sheath around a tendon. Usually, the sheath itself is inflamed, but both the sheath and the tendon can be inflamed at the same time.

What causes Tendonitis and Tenosynovitis?

Tendonitis usually develops as the result of overuse during work or leisure. Your body protects itself by creating inflammation and swelling, to stop the potential of further damage inside your body. When your inflammation and swelling start to build up, that’s when the pain levels start to increase.

Treatment of Tendonitis and Tenosynovitis

ColdCure treatments help to reduce swelling any time you’ve been overly active, or if you feel like you’re developing inflammation. If you’re developing inflammation you are most likely going to feel an increase in pain.

During less active times of the day, start your BFST treatments. BFST treatments will work to actively heal your tendonitis or tenosynovitis with each treatment by promoting blood flow to the injury site. Treatments are simple and easy: plug the device in, turn it on and rest. Treatments are 20-minutes and the effects last for up to 4 hours, which means that you’ll be receiving optimum blood flow for 4 hours after your treatment ends. For best results, do 3-4 treatments per day.
