What is Tendonitis:

WebMD defines tendonitis as follows:

Tendinitis (informally also tendonitis), meaning inflammation of a tendon, is a type of tendinopathy often confused with the more common tendinosis, which has similar symptoms but requires different treatment.[1] (The suffix -itis denotes diseases characterized by inflammation.) The term tendinitis should be reserved for tendon injuries that involve larger-scale acute injuries accompanied by inflammation. Generally tendinitis is referred to by the body part involved, such as Achilles tendinitis (affecting the Achilles tendon), or patellar tendinitis (jumper's knee, affecting the patellar tendon).

If you’re lucky enough to catch your tendonitis in its earliest stages, or at least before the point that your pain is unmanageable with home remedies and over the counter drugs, the ways in which you are able to cure your tendonitis will be greater than those of someone with a more severe case.
