Homeopathy Treatment for tendonitis

Tendonitis usually occurs more frequently in the wrist between the individual smaller and larger joints. Since it is a kind of inflammation of the tendon sheath, it is very painful for those affected. Normally, the tendon that connects the muscle to the joint is surrounded by a protective tendon sheath that protects against premature wear and tear on the joints. However, severe friction or strain on the shoulder, wrist or Achilles heel quickly leads to what is known as tendonitis, in which the tendons and tendon attachments are irritated, become inflamed and finally tear or tear.

Homeopathic remedies are a gentle alternative to pain relief. They work without side effects, relieve pain and promote healing of the inflammation.
