I am wondering why some doctors prescribe anti-inflammatory treatments for conditions that are supposedly not inflammatory such as tendinosis.
From my understanding, only tendinitis a swollen tendon would benefit from such treatment. Much of the research I have read states that cortisone shots or steroids has no effect on actual healing, or worse it delays it or inhibits it. Is there any research or proof that demonstrates that steroids, or anti-inflammatories help with tendinosis?
Also, if there is a more medicine-oriented forum where I can post this question, please let me know.
