Could my doctor give me a hard cast for wrist tendonitis. As I always take my splint off. I just want to relax my wrist. Splint isn't working.

Would not: A cast is usu for joint /bone fracture because the joint needs to immobilize for healing. You have tendonitis -inflammation of tendon due to some repetitive use, you should continue as instructed by your doctor to use the splint when you use the wrist repetitive, take anti-infl and give time because it takes few weeks to few months to heal the tendon. ...Read more

Ice/rest: Most tendonitis improved with conservative treatment that includes: rest, ice (15' on and off for 2 hours) and anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen for example.

Is tendonitis of the wrist similar to a sprained wrist?

Is tendonitis of the wrist similar to a sprained wrist?

Not really: Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon sheath (the tight passageway where tendons glide). A sprained wrist is an injury of the ligaments of the wrist. Tendons move joints and are attached to muscles. Ligaments connect bones to other bones across joints. Both can happen after trauma (a fall or twisting injury), but a sprain doesn't happen over time like tendonitis can develop. ...Read more

I have had wrist tendonitis on and off for nearly two years and have had physio but it's not working. I work with children so can't rest it, help!

Bracing?: If you keep using an 'unhappy' tendon, it is unlikely that it will resolve. There are wrist splints that prevent flexion/extension which still allow us to function in most situations. Applying ice for 15 minutes at least 3/day and taking an anti-inflammatory should slowly help the problem resolve. ...Read more

Perhaps inflammation due to recent illness, or even autoimmune arthritis (which is rare in your age group but not unheard of). The best thing to do is see your family doctor, pediatrician or sports medicine and get diagnosis, so you can figure out treatment. ...Read more
