How can extensor tendonitis be treated?

Hello, I am a marathon runner and have been having trouble with extensor tendonitis. It does not hurt while running and comes and goes randomly throughout the day while not running. what can I do to prevent this from getting worse without interrupting my training schedule?

Hi,

Most cases of extensor tendonitis are self-limited and respond to conservative treatment with physical therapy (massage, exercise) and/or NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)-oral or local applications. You may have to take a few days rest.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
