Massage Therapy for Tendonitis / Tendinopathy

Massage therapy can help to relax the muscle and reduce pain. More specifically, PPST therapists are trained in NeuroMuscular Therapy (NMT). NMT is a highly effective technique which eliminates pain caused by muscle overuse, strain and trauma, regardless of when the injury occurred. NMT focuses on trigger points-–tight spots in the muscle which are considered the source of up to 75 percent of the daily aches and pains people experience.

Physical Therapy

Stretching exercises and Physical Therapy can help to improve flexibility and range of motion in the tendons, which can help to reduce pain in the affected muscles. Stretching exercises are also important in helping to prevent the recurrence of symptoms. Our physical therapist can guide you through these stretches.

Focused Shock Wave Therapy

Focused Shock Wave is an acoustic pulse (or sound wave) that is transmitted into the tissue that can help to reduce pain caused by Tendonitis. Damaged tissue that has experienced a Focused Shock Wave gradually regenerates and eventually heals. This non-invasive office/clinic based procedure represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions and is especially appropriate for areas of thick muscle and tissue.
