Tendonitis (sometimes spelled tendinitis) of the wrist occurs when a tendon in this area becomes inflamed or swollen. DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis is an example of wrist tendonitis. There are many treatment options available that can help to reduce the pain and mobility issues associated with this condition. Non-surgical treatments include temporarily immobilizing the area with splints and braces and reducing inflammation with medication and/or steroid injections. Physical therapy can also help to alleviate discomfort and to improve function. Surgery may be necessary in more severe cases. In this procedure, the sheath that bundles the irritated tendons together (or covers them) is opened up to allow for more room and movement. Once healed, many patients can return to the activities that were painful or difficult prior to the operation.
