Suffer From Wrist Tendonitis?

October 07, 2020 2 min read

Wrist Tendonitis is a common condition that is basically an irritation and inflammation of the tendons in the wrist. It can affect only one of the tendons, but it may also involve two or more. Tendons are thick, fibrous cords that connect muscle to bone, together they allow movement of the wrist, hand, and fingers. When a sudden injury causes a sprain, or repetitive motions can cause the tendon to rub against the bone, and inflammation can be a result.

Common symptoms:

  1. Swelling and inflammation around the wrist joint
  2. A grinding sensation
  3. Warmth and redness
  4. Pain
  5. Weakness
  6. Tenderness and numbness
  7. Stiffness in the wrist
  8. Reduced range of motion

The most common causes of wrist tendonitis are repetitive movement and overuse like >>>

  1. Typing and using a computer
  2. Playing video games
  3. Texting
  4. Writing
  5. Playing sports that require the use of the wrists

A person can treat minor causes of wrist tendonitis at home by avoiding any repetitive activities that could have caused or contributed to the condition. Applying ice to the wrist to reduce inflammation. Wearing a splint to reduce movement and prevent further injury. As well as trying some light stretching exercises in your wrist. Do not try to work or play through the pain. Rest is essential to tissue healing, but it does not mean complete bed rest.
