Martha Miller – Non-surgical Treatment for Wrist Tendinitis

Image of Dr. Boyd HaynesI recently suffered with tendinitis in my wrist. It appeared as a small cyst at my wrist, in line with my thumb. I suffered with it for several weeks, until it began waking me up at night if I moved it the wrong way. Dr. Boyd Haynes diagnosed it as a form of tendinitis and suggested a cortisone injection. By that same evening, I noticed a lessening of the pain and the following day, there was only a slight tenderness where the injection had been. Within 2 days, there was no pain at all. It has now been 2 mos. and I am still pain free. Lesson learned….don’t hesitate to get a painful joint looked at. It doesn’t always mean surgery. Dr. Haynes has performed surgery on me for carpal tunnel and trigger finger release. Sometimes surgery is the best option; however, I appreciate the fact that Dr. Haynes always offers the least invasive approach first….and it has given me immediate relief every time!
