So, you have been diagnosed with tendonitis of the wrist, or fear you might develop it, and it is time to look at treatments. Preventative methods for tendonitis of the wrist are part of a comprehensive treatment program and should be exercised during and after recovery. Tendonitis can be caused by repetitive or acute trauma or a combination of the two. Treatment for tendonitis is the same whether it developed as a repetitive stress injury or not. The first step in treating/preventing tendonitis of the wrist is understanding what caused it. Many general causes of repetitive stress injuries can be contributing factors for tendonitis of the wrist. Performing repetitive finger and wrist motions or using vibrating equipment also heightens your risk of developing tendonitis in that area. Using a Visual Analog Pain Scale will help pinpoint the major and minor causes. The next step in your treatment/prevention of tendonitis of the wrist is to stop performing those tasks or correct your body mechanics when you do. If it is working at a computer set up an ergonomically sound computer workstation. If it is another tool or setup follow sound ergonomic principles ensuring you keep a natural wrist position when working and take frequent breaks. If the vibration is a factor use a vibration absorbing pad or glove or change the grip on the tool to one that better fits your hand. The next step in treating/preventing tendonitis of the wrist is to use proper body mechanics in all wrist related activities. These tips to prevent wrist stress injuries are a good basic guide to maintaining a healthy wrist. Playing with different muscles than those you work with can also provide relief to an ailing wrist. You also need to stay healthy and fit. Maintain a healthy weight and good cardiovascular health. Strong bodies are more resilient against the stressors that cause these conditions.
