(HealthDay News) -- Tendinitis is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon. Immediately after injury, those with tendinitis should apply ice to the spot, says Mayo Clinic.
Icing the area for 15 to 20 minutes will numb pain and constrict blood vessels to reduce swelling. Icing should be done every four to six hours, with a towel or cloth separating the ice pack from the skin.
For chronic tendonitis pain, heat may provide better relief. Heat increases blood flow to the area and relaxes muscles, promoting both healing and pain relief.
