tendinitis can cause pain and swelling for 6 weeks acutely but can become a chronic problem (meaning it lasts longer and may respond to the brace but due to a repetitive motion/injury/or weakness in the area can persist longer)-physical/occupational therapy is foremost
have you completed this yet?
the forearm muscles support the wrist and can swell in response to a heavier load from the weakness in the wrist
Thereoy wasn't something that was discussed by my doctor. Is this something i can do on my own at home?
if it persists or gets worse i would discuss an mri with your dr as there are varying degrees of tendinitis and may need further testing
therapy is something you should ask for with your dr first
ok, thank you. So you think just resting it will not make it better?
at home you can do some gentle tennis ball squeezes and then go through range of motion exercises (movement in all planes of direction) while holding a small weight-like canned veggies work well
dont go to the point of pain just to keep it mobile and tight
