Weight training: A general rule after tendonitis or joint irritation has resolved is to go back at half load and half repetition. Wearing a glove or soft splint and avoiding the positions that previously caused irritation is important as well as knowing what may have set the problem off in the first place. Mechanics become even more important. Speak with a trainer, or PT and your doctor to clarlfy things ...Read more

Surgery?: May need a surgical procedure and/or physical therapy. Best to see a hand surgeon for a more complete evaluation. You can then make a more informed decision about what to do. Base your decision on the severity of the problem, chances of success if treatment, and pick which feels right. There's no "right" answer, and no treatment without risk. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Tendonisis in hand that isn't going away.. Treatment other than splinting? I only have use of my one hand and can't immobilize it.
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.

It depends: It may be that the injury is actually more serious than tendonitis and thus is not responding to rest. It is also possible that even though you are resting it, it is still being used daily in everyday activities that prevent full healing. A temporary brace or cast immobilization may be required. If your pain is persistent or not improving, i recommend seeking orthopedic medical evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

RICE: Rest, ice, compress, elevate. Avoid doing the activity that is causing you to have the tendinitis. Once you feel better, slowly return to the activity until toleration. See a podiatrist for further treatments as well. You may need anti inflammatory meds as well. ...Read more
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
Multiple treatments: Studies have shown that short term (the first 6 months) cortisone injections are the most effective treatment for pain. However, symptoms often come back if not treated with exercise prescription. Long-term studies (1 year out) show physical therapy to have the best outcomes. Off-loader bracing also has been shown to help. Treatment such as prp or surgery are only indicated if these don't work. ...Read more
