What to do ?

It is important to take action without delay :

  • rest the joint
  • apply an ice pack for half an hour on the sensitive area
  • get appropriate treatment. Ask your pharmacist for advice. Some herbal medicines like turmeric can be used to reinforce the tendons.

If there is any doubt consult your doctor.
