Without knowing the exact location of your tendonitis, it is difficult to give any more precise advise. ...Read more

I've had tendonitis in my left wrist since I had my baby. It's extremely painful. I've tried immobilization and anti inflammatories. What r my options?
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

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.
