A tendon is part of the muscle that connects your muscle to bone. It is a strong, fibrous tissue responsible for transferring the forces generated by the muscle to the bone. It is this transfer of force that causes our body’s movement. When a tendon becomes irritated or inflamed, it becomes painful, especially with movement.
Inflammation of the tendon is called tendinitis. Tendinitis in the wrist occurs when the tendons in the forearm become inflamed. The tendons for your fingers must pass through one area, sometimes becoming inflamed. Because there are a couple of tendons close to one another, wrist tendinitis will need a proper evaluation from your pain management specialist before we can develop a plan of care.
