Initial treatments may include rest, immobilizing the joint with a wrist splint, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications. Often, physical therapy is helpful to assist with improving range of motion and strengthening of the muscles/tendons that cross the wrist joint. The medical team can also assist with identifying activities, improper form or equipment, or training errors that contributed to the injury– and guiding safe return to activity. On occasion, injections may be considered. Rarely is surgery necessary.
