Tendonitis: Diagnosis and Treatment

Tendonitis Diagnosis and TreatmentTennis Elbow? Jumper’s knee? And what is texting thumb? These are all forms of tendonitis, an inflammation of a tendon that can be quite painful, especially when it occurs in the lower legs, ankles, and feet! The tendon swells up and rubs against the bone creating pain.

  • Icing and heating the areas.

  • Taking anti-inflammatory, over-the-counter medicine.

Additionally, Dr. Forman, DPM, MBA, FAPWCA highly suggests you make an appointment to visit his Scottsdale office, Put Your Feet First, and discuss all your options to help you quickly heal from tendonitis and help you resume your daily activities.
When You Need More Than Home Remedies…..

Not to worry if home remedies are not helping! There are several advanced ways to help you heal quickly from tendonitis, so you can be pain free. At Put Your Feet First, you can expect to have your healing process advanced through a couple of other procedures including MLS Laser treatment, and Platelet-rich plasma procedures.

MLS Laser treatment

MLS laser treatment, FDA-cleared, has been proven to be effective in advancing the healing process of foot and ankle tendonitis. In fact, studies show that MLS laser treatment coupled with other remedies, can speed up the recovery process. MLS Laser treatment uses a light that penetrates the injured area into the cellular area to create regrowth of both cells and tissue while decreasing the inflammation. To discover if this is a viable option for you, please contact us at Put Your Feet First via our website or call us to schedule an appointment. We can be reached at 480.423.8400.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP is a viable method to help patients heal from injuries quickly. Dr. Mark Forman, DPM draws your own blood and spins it in his Scottsdale office. He then collects the healthy platelets and injects it back into your injured area. Your own platelets allow the injured area to heal as it  increases the cellular regrowth and proteins while reducing inflammation. To find out if this is a practical option for you, please call us to schedule an appointment.
