Tendinosis/Tendonitis/Tendinopathy?

18 March 2002

The authors make a good distinction from a pathologist's persepective, but how does one distinguish clinically? particularly in the early stages? While NSAIDs might be of no benefit for tendinosis, they are extremely useful for tendonitis. What suggestions do the authors have for those in the front lines?

From many years of personal experience with thousands of "occupational athletes", the judicious, brief use of NSAIDs has not only not caused any "co-morbidity", but rather has significantly reduced both impairment and morbidity, and their often associated disability ramifications.
