    My advice here is going to be partially an echo of others, here are the supplements I've tried, in decreasing order of efficacy:

    1) Joint Force
    2) Arnica Gel + Menthol combo
    3) Tumeric (need to take with food)
    3) Cissus (lots of GI issues with this tho, with or without food)
    4) Glucosamine/Chondroiton

    I must say that for an acute inflammation issue, only Joint Force and plain old ICE give me immediate relief

    With regards to "soft tissue" therapy, I would recommend:

    1) ART (Active Release Therapy) - This is basically breaking up scar tissue build up on connective tissue (tendons/ligaments) with manual (read: hand/finger) pressure
    2) "Rolfing" type techniques (don't necessarily need to find a "Rolfing" practitioner) basically the same as ART but focused on breaking up scar tissue/adhesions in/on skeletal muscle tissue and fascia.
    3) "Graston" type techniques - Similar to ART but uses "tools" to "scrape" at the scar tissue build up on connective tissue.
    4) Self Myofascial Release - Similar to the above type techniques, but performing the therapy on yourself, using foam rollers, balls, etc. - You can google this and find tons of youtube videos with ideas here...

    My chiropractor not only practices hard tissue (i.e. bone) therapy, but also the above soft tissue (i.e. muscle/connective tissue) techniques, and as well I've turned him on to Joint Force, which he uses on his other patients.

    Anyhow, if you're tight on $$ (and/or don't have health insurance such that you can seek out a practitioner) the cheapest options I would recommend are JointForce, ICE, and Self Myofascial release.

    Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions on the above; I can help point you in the right direction if you're having difficulty getting more info on anything.

    Nice, detailed post. I have been using Joint Force on my surgically repaired ankle, and it has been helping big time.

    All excellent recommendations. Heartily second foam rollers and, gulp, rolfing even though it has to be up there with childbirth in terms of pain depending on how many adhesions you have and where they are. Rolfing saved me from shoulder surgery, without a doubt. Foam rolling, chiropractic care, and my inversion table keep me on my feet.

    Joint Force provides a more of an analgesic effect than actual repair /healing but it is a great product. Arnica is one of my favorites as well . Which brand topical Arnica do u use? The with Cissus and Celadrin and we can go wrong

    Long term use can in fact assist with repair as continued inflammation prevents / delays healing. Inflammation is bad!

    Jointforce is an excellent pain reliever for the lower back as well. The best thing for lower back issues is to strengthen your core.

    Thanks. Yes, I would definitely use JF as it can help connective tissue repair... supposedly Glucosamine/Chondroiton can as well, but after taking high doses for long periods of time, I came to the conclusion that it didn't do much, and as such wasn't worth the $$ for me. I can honestly say that without JF, from an acute perspective there are days where I couldn't work out without it... and from a chronic perspective, considering all the joint problems I have from years of fighting (grew up in a bad area), martial arts, and lifting, if I hadn't discovered it a couple of years ago when I was at the point of seriously thinking about not lifting anymore, I don't know that I'd still be able to lift heavy like I do...

    Yea bro, totally right... I should have mentioned, ART, Rolfing, Graston, and Self Myofascial Release, are all on a good day unpleasant... on a bad day, they can be mind numbingly painful during the procedure. I've actually purposely got myself half drunk before then proceeding to beat up (self-rolfing style) the muscles in my forearm, to try to deal with the misery. I've also high-dosed ibuprofen before going the chiropractor to deal with the pain of this stuff... ultimately, I go as long as I can before I (literally) "tap out"... and more often then not, find myself with some bruising and/or petechia (small blood vessels breaking) in the area, especially with the Graston work.

    Yea, as I said above, and Truth said as well, JF can actually help repair connective tissue... For Arnica, I actually like this stuff called "Max Muscle Rehab" that is a combination of Arnica & 9% Menthol (and some vitamins) in a little roller bottle... it makes it easier for me to apply and forces a bit of a deep massage... If it's a joint problem, I go with JF, if it's a muscle problem, I'll start with the Arnica/Menthol, but if that's not enough, I've used JF on muscle problems with success as well.

    Right on, Inflammation is the enemy... in fact, I should mention that I take a tablespoon of Carlson's fish oil every day to try to help keep it at bay.

    I'm going to heartily second both using JF to relieve inflammation and strengthening your core. I got injured in 5th grade, which temporarily paralyzed me from about the middle of my lower back down. My lower lumbar spine and pelvis had twisted so as not to break, which still affects me to this day. When I first started lifting years ago, I had major back issues after squatting even my own body weight (3+ days in a row where I had to call in to work and just lay on the floor as I couldn't walk) and quit. It wasn't until I discovered chiropractic that I was able to lift again, and the first thing I did as I got back into it was work on my core. Good mornings, SLDL, squats, deadlifts, and crazy ab workouts became part of my routine, although I had to build up slowly. Getting into Martial Arts along the way helped big time as well. I can currently do 10 "dragon flags" (most folks can't do 1), and my PR's are 500x8 on squat (parallel) and 500x2 on deadlift. There is no way that I would be lifting if I hadn't worked on my core seriously; hell I still have to crack my pelvis before I squat/DL... most folks would think that someone with my injury wouldn't even be able to lift their own body weight, never mind where I've gotten to... So managing injuries and inflammation with products like JF, manual therapies like I've mentioned, and strengthening my core, is what allows me to continue to lift today.

    CissusRX worked wonders for me while playing college ball, habitual shoulder & elbow problems kept at bay for sure. Took a little while to kick in but once it did, smooth sailing partner.

    You can work your legs. I recommend it to keep from developing inconsistencies between your upper and lower body. Just stick to machines, that don't load your back. I thought the leg press would be safe when I had back issues but it seemed to hurt my back at the bottom of the movment. My doctor told me if it didn't hurt it was ok to do. So try light weights to determine which machines are safe and progress from there......CAREFULLY

    Yeah, Leg press is ironically very rough on your lower back unless you drop your poundage in half and make it strictly a quad movement.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    Through all the posts no one mentioned the most beneficial thing. Rest. Rest the tendons, give them a break. Your going to develop tendonitis if you do not manage it now, and may even experience bursitis.

    Anti-inflammatory medications, resting it, and replacing lifting using it with dynamic stretching for a week or two, then ease back into it.

    I am not here to throw a sales pitch for a supplement company. I just want to see you heal. I have achilles tendinitis in both my legs. Its no fun.

    Fish oil and cissus will help. But only a little. The pain is your body saying "Something is wrong! Stop!". Don't ignore it.

    I have to agree here...rest is the best remedy...in particular long uninterrupted sleep.

    I did that during my vacations. The problem remained. I'm only lifting 3 times per week, about 50 minutes. I rest alot

    I'm taking cissus powder for about 5 days and 80% of the pain is gone. I know that the problem is not solved but cissus seems to be working. I will use it for 2/3 months. The cause of the injury is gone now because I'm no longer doing the heavy daily work I was doing while back

    I was going to mention that with chronic inflammation due to repetitive use, rest doesn't help that much... rest helps more for acute conditions, but chronic ones need deeper care, which is why I recommended the therapies in my previous post.

    Not trying to plug products, but from personal experience I think the best stack to use is Joint Force and Osteo-Sport. It worked wonders for me when I could afford it. The two together I felt like I had never had any previous injuries. It took a while for those feelings and effects to kick in, but when they did it certainly helped me greatly.

    Cheers!

    It is the good sh*t. However, I think it really is best used in conjunction with Osteo-Sport. Everyone has their own opinion, but I really believe there is no better 1-2 punch for making you feel pain free.

    I am not here to throw a sales pitch for a supplement company. I just want to see you heal. I have achilles tendinitis in both my legs. Its no fun.

    Fish oil and cissus will help. But only a little. The pain is your body saying "Something is wrong! Stop!". Don't ignore it.

    Well 3 months have pasted and I'm very happy with the results because the pain went away. I can curl heavy again... However I will keep using cissus because I want to prevent any future situation and it has no side effects

    Also there are other benefits of Cissus supplementation such as suppress appetite, weight loss, and lean muscle mass, and lower blood sugar.

    I've also used Devil's Claw (i love the name more than anything) with pretty good success. When stacked with Cissus..it does a bang up job of knocking down inflammation, then healing.

    Though not touted as such, UR Spray has helped me out immensely with my chronic knee pain and my brother who hasn't been able to work out fo quite over a year due to chronic shoulder pain has been using UR Spray for a couple of months and is now back in the gym with no pain.

    Good combo. I've used the celadrin topical lotion. Bromelain certainly has its benefits but it needs high doses to be effective.

    definitely have to agree. I notice joint help helped with some issues I was having with my knees, since I've had tendonitis for a couple of years. Definitely a significant difference in how my joints feel
