A 43-year-old female asked:
Basic wrist exercises with 1 pd weights okay for those w/wrist tendinitis when in pain? Isn't exercise with tendinitis a must?

Exercise or therapy: Tendonitis of the wrist just like in other joints can be difficult to treat. You are correct that exercise is helpful in treating tendonitis but you may benefit more from physical therapy so you do the exercises correctly and do not make the condition worse. See a physician possible an orthopedist or rheumatologist and then have a treatment plan. Good luck
