Why doesn't my wrist tendonitis seem to get better when I stay off of it?

Why doesn't my wrist tendonitis seem to get better when I stay off of it?

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 more
