Tendon Injections

Injections for tendon problems are only generally offered when there is significant inflammation such as in de Quervain's tenosynovitis. For most other tendon problems the best treatments are time and a good tendon loading programme. Injections may otherwise be offered in cases of very severe pain and the options include corticosteroid, dextrose prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma, and autologous blood.
