Is there any herbal medicine that can reduce the pain of tendonitis?

My husband suffers badly from this and is especially bad now, I think because of the weather.

The problem is he is a gardener and needs his strength, but this pain is causing such mental grief that he can`t work without wanting to cry!

Is there any suggestions for this?

    I do not know whether it was psychological or not but I had problem in my right hand and relieved the pain with ” dog oil”.
    Apparently it is used with greyhounds.

    Unfortunately gardening is just one of those activities that irritate tendonitits. I take Diclofenac and pain killers. Dont know of a herbal medicine. I dont take herbal medicines due to the fact they are not tested.

    HI Great Thinker

    Here are some ideas to heal the issue.

    Tendonitis can be caused by decreased circulation to the tendons from repeated or chronic trauma. The most common repeated or extreme trauma is excessive exercise and/or strain. Certain diseases can also cause tendonitis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disorders, gout, Reiter`s syndrome (an inflammatory syndrome), excessively high blood cholesterol levels, and sexually transmitted diseases.


    Natural Cures

    Note: Treatment of tendonitis needs to include immobilization of the affected area, compresses with cold or heat, oral and topical pain relievers, and therapeutic exercise, which should be done more often as joint heals and is able to tolerate increased movement.

    Diet: Avoid nightshade plants (white potato, tomato, eggplant, all peppers except black, and tobacco); if restricted for a long time, over years, this may be effective. Assessment and treatment of food allergies is imperative, as inflammation may be aggravated by food allergies in many people.

    Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy Cream® applied topically over the affected areas can soothe pain and speed healing.

    Herbs: Combine equal parts of the tinctures of willow bark, cramp bark, and prickly ash and take one teaspoon of this mixture three times a day.

    Homeopathy: Useful homeopathic remedies include Aconite, Thuja, Ruta grav., Belladonna, and Apis mel.

    Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.
    *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

    Nutritional Supplementation: Useful nutrients for tendonitis include vitamin B complex, vitamin B6, vitamin C with bioflavonoids, vitamin E, bromelain, essential fatty acids, cod liver oil, calcium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and D-phenylalanine.

    Topical Treatment: Massage the affected areas with a mixture of salt and vinegar, then wrap with several layers of gauze or muslin soaked with this mixture.

    Alternative Professional Care: If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown useful for treating tendonitis: Acupressure, Acupuncture, Bodywork, Biofeedback Training, Chiropractic, Craniosacral Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Energy Medicine (Light Beam Generator, Ondamed, TENS), Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Neural Therapy, Osteopathy, Oxygen Therapy (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy), Prolotherapy and Yoga.

    Best of health to you

    Tumeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and can now be bought in supplement stores in refined form.

    Glucosamine sulphate also has anti-inflamatory effects when taken for prolonged periods but there are contra-indications to this as it is hydro-phylic (likes water) so can raise your blood pressure.

    Unfortunately tendonitis is one of those things which will continue to stay with him while he keeps doing things which irritate the tendons.
    Maybe strapping and tapping while he is working will help and manual therapy would to a certain extent.

    You can go down the track of NSAIDs but they tend to irritate the stomach and prolonged use results in them becoming less effective leading to higher dose requirements.

    In view of this getting worse in the cold weather, are you sure it is tendonitis?

    My husband was suffering badly from tendonitis was conventional medicine was not working. A friend told us about horesetail extract found in Silica Complex and he started taking it daily. He has not had 1 flair up since being on his daily regime of 1 pill daily. I started taking it for my knee and it has helped with the inflamation. It also has a wonderful side effect. I now have beautiful nails to boot.

    I hope this helps

    Alt healer has it right, in fact, pretty much exhaustive list of options. Though didn’t mention specifically photobiostimulation (often called cold laser therapy, low level laser therapy, etc.) which has been approved by the FDA for carpal tunnel – which is extremely similar.

    Additionally, your husband should know that continuing the repetitive motion that created the condition has more negative effects than just continued irritation. It actually can change the cellular structure additionally aggrevating the condition and setting up for more chronic pathology.

    Naprapathy is a manual medicine discipline which seems to be very effective too.

    It’s something that i’ve had on and off for the last 4 -5 years, and have currently. REALLY flamin painful!
    No ones sure what causes it but it’s where the tendons and sometimes muscle puts down calcium deposits over time, Which isn’t painful, and has the consistency of tooth paste. The pain and reduced movement comes in the re-absorbing phase. It inflames the surrounding area slightly and causes bursitis too.) The whole process takes ages and varies. Ultrasound are usually done in the re-absorbing phase and can seem not as big a problem.
