Calcific tendonitis is a condition that is characterized by the buildup of calcium deposits in the tendons. This condition can be quite painful and can restrict movement. Many people ask whether this condition will go away on its own or whether they need to seek professional treatment from a physiotherapist or chiropractic doctor. In this blog post, we will explore the causes of calcific tendonitis and provide some insight into the best course of action for dealing with calcific tendonitis.
Calcific tendonitis is a condition that can be caused by a number of factors. Some people are more prone to developing this condition due to their genetics while others may develop it as a result of repetitive strain or injury. There are also certain foods that you should avoid with calcific tendonitis. Whatever the cause calcific tendonitis can be a debilitating condition that requires prompt treatment.
In some cases, calcific tendonitis can go away on its own. However, the likelihood of this happening is quite low. The calcium deposits that accumulate in the tendons can take anywhere from several months to several years to dissolve. During this time the symptoms of the condition can be quite severe and may include pain and swelling and restricted movement.
Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options available for those who suffer from calcific tendonitis. One of the most effective methods is chiropractic care. Chiropractors can help with calcific tendonitis, and are trained to identify the underlying causes of the condition and to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to the individual’s needs.
Another effective treatment option for calcific tendonitis is physiotherapy. This discipline focuses on improving the flexibility and strength of the affected tendons which can help to reduce pain and improve mobility. In addition, physiotherapy can be an effective way to prevent the condition from recurring in the future.
Massage therapy can provide relief for calcific tendonitis. Through targeted massage techniques, the therapist can stimulate circulation to the affected area, improve joint mobility, reduce inflammation and promote the natural healing process of the body. Clients can expect improved flexibility, decreased pain and increased functionality with regular massage therapy sessions.
It is important to note that the best course of action for dealing with calcific tendonitis will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of the condition and the individual’s overall health. It is important to seek professional treatment as soon as possible in order to ensure that the condition does not worsen over time.
In conclusion, calcific tendonitis is a condition that can be quite painful and can restrict movement. While it is possible for the condition to go away on its own over time the likelihood of this happening is quite low. It is important to seek professional treatment in order to reduce pain and improve mobility and prevent the condition from recurring in the future.
