Tendonitis Archives - Discover Optimal Healthcare


Tendonitis is one of the most common wrist-related conditions, and it is caused by a simple overuse of the wrist tendons. If you are experiencing wrist tendonitis you could have swelling around your wrist joint. You might also experience a grinding sensation when you move your wrist, accompanied by feelings of pain.

If you’re experiencing wrist tendonitis there are a variety of nonsurgical options at your disposal. Immobilizing the wrist is usually the first step in treating tendonitis.
