Tendonitis includes conditions like trigger finger, Dequervain's disease, and tennis elbow. Our friendly, professional team offers various surgical and non-surgical treatments to effectively manage discomfort and restore mobility.
There are several different types of tendonitis, a condition in which any tendon is inflamed or irritated. Tendons are the cord-like fibers that hold muscle onto the bone. Some examples of conditions caused by tendonitis include trigger finger, Dequervain’s disease, and lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow). These concerns are difficult or impossible to cure; however, they can typically be treated with a variety of surgical and non-surgical options.
Trigger Finger often occurs as a result of repetitive motion such as gripping. The finger often will make a snapping sound when straightened, and it can become permanently stuck in a bent position if left untreated. Non-surgical treatment options include cortisone injections and splinting. In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary.
DeQuervain’s Tenosynovitis, also called Mommy’s Thumb, affects the tendons of the wrist closest to the thumb. Turning, grasping, and making a fist can cause significant discomfort. Repetitive motion may be a contributing factor, and this condition is most commonly seen in new mothers. Treatment options include braces, physical therapy, medication, injections, or, in rare cases, surgery.
