Ultrasound Exam Results Show Thickening of Tendon Sheath

Ultrasound exam results showed up " thickening " of tendon sheath ?

Is this tenosynovitis ?

And is the treatment the same ?


Joshua Answers:

Well, the body is always changing. A thickening of the tendon sheath isn't necessarily a bad thing.

If you have pain with it, that's a different story, and then it could certainly be Tenosynovitis.

Ultimately, the treatment is the same as for Tendonitis:

1. Relax the muscles, open up the connective tissue.

2. Ice Dip and Ice Massage.

3. Cover bases with Vitamin D level up where it's supposed to be, Magnesium for Tendonitis to help relax muscles/stop spastic tightness.

Tenosynovitis is just more stubborn, more acutely painful, and a bit tougher to get the inflammation out.
