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 ?
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.
