Tendonitis & Bursitis – Natural Treatment & Prevention

by Dr. Stephen Gangemi on August 7, 2011

“Itis” means inflammation usually as a result of trauma (such as a tendon strain) or infection. However inflammation can also occur from nutritional problems as well as local muscle and joint dysfunctions, and I’d say that this is much more common than actual trauma and infection. Think about how often a runner develops an injury to their foot or knee that suddenly creeps up on them and their physician diagnoses it as tendonitis. Or a tennis player or swimmer notices some shoulder pain that gets worse and worse and is eventually told they have bursitis. Read about why a person gets tendonitis or bursitis and how to treat and prevent these “itis” ailments naturally, here at Sock Doc.
