It depends how long it’s been a problem for and what treatment you’ve had. If you haven’t had an injection, these can be very effective, and have a high chance of getting rid of the problem. If you have had injections and it’s come back then a local anaesthetic procedure to release the tendon has an extremely high chance of getting rid of the problem.
