Is Heat Good To Put On Your Wrists For Wrist Tendinitis?
by Mike K
I have had Wrist Tendinitis for almost 2 years now.
When I take long resting breaks, it helps, but I go to high school online (this is my senior year, thank god).
Then I can go back to "normal school". Until then, I am stuck for the next year doing a lot of work online (2-3 hours an day, 5 days an week).
Also, Is sticking heat (like thermal liniment) good to stick on your wrists?
Heat is a great thing to put on your wrists. It helps alleviate wrist tendonitis pain. Temporarily.
Heat brings blood and nutrition to the area. That's a good thing.
But you have had wrist tendinitis for 2 years. This indicates that you have a chronic state of inflammation happening.
Inflammation is part of what allows Tendonitis
of all sorts to continue to cause problems, and to get worse, as time passes. Decades and a life time.
Inflammation traps fluid in the area. So heat brings new blood to the area and makes it feel good for a bit, but then the pain comes back. And some of that new blood gets trapped in the area. This can cause it's own problems.
Were I you, I would learn How To Reduce Inflammation
You're at home, so you can Ice Dip all day long. I would hit it HARD for a week, dipping as much as you possibly can.
And then start to Ice Massage the painful hot spots on the tendons.
