Pianist Tendonitis, a hard formation at the wrist, but without pain
Hello, I am a young pianist, my problem is on the under the second and third fingers tendons of my hand there is a formation (a solid thing) i can feel it when i touch and i can move it sideways. It is very close to my wrist and it is not causing any pain, but i am wondering if it is making my playing less flexible and making the learning process slower?
And also i am wondering if i loose my flexibility after some time completely.
I will be happy if you can advise me. I can not rest my hand because i should play and practice, i use some anti inflamtory but it is not making this formation to disappear. do you think i should make a surgery?
Hi Arden. I'm certainly happy to offer suggestions as I can.
So.Anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen
don't work for much, much less reduce lumps and growths of any kind.
The question is, what exactly is this formation?
You don't have pain, so it's not likely Tendonitis
, though if you play piano a lot you will sooner or later experience the results of tightening muscles and the Pain Causing Dynamic
that MAY OR MAY NOT develop, depending on your nutrition and your self care and the luck of how your body is built.
See: What Is Tendonitis?
1. Is it a formation on your actual tendon? Or is it floating loose?
2. How big is it?
3. What happens if you poke/squeeze it?
4. Is it deep, or just under the skin? Is the skin raised?
5. Previous pain or injury to the wrist?
6. -Is- it reducing your flexibility or slowing your learning?
