A condition where one or more tendons in the wrist become inflamed and irritated. There are several tendons in the wrist that connect the muscles of the forearm and hand to the bones of the wrist and hand. These tendons are the small rope like structures that you can see connecting to the fingers on the back of your hand. Wrist tendonitis causes pain at the wrist which can radiate up to the elbow, stiffness in the wrist, swelling in the wrist area and tenderness to touch in the wrist and/or forearm.
The Physical Therapists at Apple Physical Therapy will design a personalized treatment plan specific to you and your injury that will include stretching exercises to improve the flexibility of the wrist, hand and fingers. We will include strengthening exercises to improve strength in the elbow, wrist and hand and in some cases the trunk and postural muscles. Manual therapy techniques such as massage and stretching will help break down scar tissue and muscular restrictions. If necessary, your PT may elect to use modalities such as heat and/or ice to help reduce pain and ready the body for exercise.
