3 time a day at 1st: Dmso is a very safe agent that often reduces pain and inflammation when applied topically. Once absorbed it's metabolized into msm, also anti-inflammatory.

RICE: A good treatment for many musculoskeletal injuries is the rice protocol: rest, immobilize, cold, elevate. Don't use it, keep it still (splints help this), ice it and keep it elevated. If it doesn't get better, it's better to take a wrist injury to the doctor sooner rather than later to prevent complications. There are lots of ways to fracture a wrist that might not be apparent without an exam. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

To prevent it: Wrist curls, flexing the wrist with a very light dumbbell with palm facing forward or backward (reverse wrist curl), can strengthen the forearm and elbow which is good for prevention.

Ask your doctor: There is no "right answer" as different orthopaedic surgeons have varying protocols that can all be acceptable.

Get evaluated: I would recommend seeing a doctor. You should have an xray to make sure it's only a sprain and not worse. If it's truly a sprain, your doctor may immobilize you in an ankle brace, offload with crutches, and recommend simple things like rice therapy; rest, ice, compression wraps and elevation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tennis ball squeeze: Have a tennis ball handy. At least 3 times weekly, pick it up and spend a few minutes per hand squeezing it. That simple. No different than exercising any other muscle group: do it consistently, do it longer as the weeks go by. Strength and endurance will come. ...Read more
Painful rotator cuff: I always tell my patients to listen to their body. If it hurts when you are exercising then it probably is not helping.

Not much help: I don't think that elevating your arm is going to help much with a tendonitis unless this may help your shoulder by placing it in a different position. I would suggest over the counter advil or aleve, (naproxen) with some stretching and light exercises. Without knowing the exact location of your tendonitis, it is difficult to give any more precise advise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Watch the lateral raises as force at shoulder is 4x the weight w/ arm lifted to side. Indyshoulder.Com. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
