Calcific Quadriceps Tendonitis in a soccer player
I am from Croatia, so I am sorry if my English is not to good.
My doctor said I have calcific quadriceps tendonitis.
I am trying to heal this condition for last two months.
I read many articles on Internet and tried everything to heal it.
Massages, NSAIDs, increased magnesium intake, icing...
And then I started to play soccer and pain came back.
I am frustrated about that.
Please, give me some good advice what to do. And tell me, how long should I wait before returning to sport?
I'd be happy to help, and your English is just fine, no worries.
Some questions first.
1. How much magnesium, and of what kind, are you taking?
2. How exactly have you been icing? Did it help at all?
3. Describe the massages you have been getting.
4. Why does your doctor think it's 'calcific tendonitis' as opposed to regular Tendonitis
5. What exactly happens now if you play sports? Please describe the symptoms.
