maybe. your best bet is to find a PT who knows their stuff (not just Kelly starrett (sp)) and have your issue looked at. tendon injuries take a fucking long as shit time to heal and in most cases cutting intensity on whatever it is that's causing it is part of the treatment.
what I'd do is cut the stuff that makes it worse immediately, let the area rest, maybe ice it some if it hurts like shit, then start rehabbing and possibly stretching when it's relatively pain free. Then a gradual return into normal work.
tendons can also get fucked if there's excessive tightness or some weirdness going on around the area, so soft tissue work there can also help. fixing everything in your programming and technique probably goes without saying.
