Conservative treatments are recommended in stages I and II. In the acute or early stages, treatment is directed at reducing inflammation and removing stress to the tendon in the hope that the damaged tendon will heal. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) may be beneficial in providing pain relief and in reducing inflammation. Oral steroids may be indicated for short-term treatment of the acute inflammation in some patients. Physical therapy may be utilized to resolve inflammation and to strengthen the tendon. Often immobilization may be required with a cast, cam-walker, or braces. For more information please visit our website at www.FootHouston.com. 713.529.1010
