massage and taking it easy for 8 weeks I got rid of my latest bout of tendinitis in the elbow. The fact that the girl in the chiro's office was real sweet made the rehab that much better.

20 minutes 2x a week sure helped my elbow. I'd recommend it! Sure beat the cortisone route, which I'll never do again!

I had a major case of tibialis anterior tendonitis this summer. A combination of massage, aggressive ultrasound, and electro-stimulation healed it without me having to take any time off the bike. The electrotherapy itself flushes out the metabolic byproducts of the injury, while the ultrasound breaks down adhesions and scar tissue.
