Wrist tendonitis is inflammation of the tendons in the wrist. Tendons connect muscle to bone and are involved in joint movement. Repetitive movement of the wrist or fingers can cause inflammation of the tendons.
Pain, swelling, creaking noise and warmth/redness can be present. It can also reduce movement at the wrist and cause decreased grip strength.
There are a number of treatments that may help reduce the intensity of your symptoms and relieve the pain and loss of function it can cause. Nonsurgical treatment options may include splinting, exercise, or education on activity modification. Your hand therapist can assist you with these interventions.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, book an appointment.
