Healing Levaquin® Tendon Rupture at Home

Levaquin®, the popular antibiotic used to treat a wide variety of infections has been linked to various tendon injuries, including tendonitis and tendon ruptures. If you have suffered tendon damage after taking this medication, consult a Massachusetts Levaquin® injury attorney to discuss your options.

Healing Your Tendon Rupture

If your tendon has ruptured, you will probably need to undergo surgery—but not always. Here are some tips for alleviating and even healing this injury at home:

  • Increase your protein and mineral intake. There are certain tendon supplements available to facilitate healing by pumping your body full of collagen and mineral nutrients to help heal the damage. A protein deficiency can also slow healing, so be sure you are obtaining a sufficient amount.
  • Ice massage can help eradicate waste in the affected area and help circulate new blood and nutrition. Ice massage also helps get rid of any Levaquin® that remains in the affected tissue (unless it is already bonded to the tissue).
  • Reduce inflammation by taking anti-inflammatory pills in conjunction with ice massage, as this will facilitate healing.
