Answers to Common Hand and Wrist Questions

Premier Health providers answers frequently asked questions about common hand and wrist conditions.

What is tendonitis and how is it treated?

A tendon is the tissue, often cord-like, that connects muscle to bone, according to the Arthritis FoundationOff Site Icon (AF), and tendinitis is the inflammation of that tissue.

Due to a tendon’s location near a joint, the pain of tendinitis may be mistaken for arthritis and sometimes bursitis, according to the American College of RheumatologyOff Site Icon (ACR). Treatment may involve movement modification, resting of that tendon, icing, or bracing the area, according to the ACR.

For more information about tendonitis, talk to your doctor.
