Your tendons are designed to withstand loading. However, if you overwork your tendons, they can become stressed. When tendons become stressed they endure micro-tears that lead to pain, inflammation, and swelling. People with type 2 diabetes are three times more likely to deal with tendon stress and pain. In order to heal, you have to pinpoint what is stressing your tendons, rest and allow enough time for your swelling to go down.*
After sufficient rest, be sure to ease back into exercise with low intensity workouts. Also, it helps to regularly eat anti-inflammatory foods such as leafy green vegetables, berries, turmeric spice and bone broth.
