There are a number of articles regarding NSAIDs having a negative effect on healing conditions like tendonosis and tendinitis. From what I understand the channel through which they reduce inflammation disrupts healing. In general, many of them constrict vessels, thus reducing bloodflow even further to tendons. Are there other reasons, or interactions they can have with cells that may also disrupt healing?

Are there advantages of using NSAIDs to promote healing?
