Tendonitis
 
I'm hoping this is a close topic to what I'm looking for information about. I've had both CTS surgeries on my hands, but I'm having problems with Tendonitis, after 30 years in a computer career. Can anyone offer suggestions on wearable devices to help with it?

Would wrist splints help?

You don't state where the tendinitis is. If you go to your doctor they can recommend and write a referral to a physical therapist who can fit you for the proper device. To just take a product off the wall at the store may not be the perfect item for your problem. Also physical therapists can utilize a topical corticosteroid treatment (script for the cream you pick up at pharmacy) where they use heat and ultrasound with the cream to try and reduce the tendinitis. I have had this done. Less than successful for me due to underlying osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia as well as widespread tendinitis. I have been dealing for years and no success yet. But I think my tendinitis is a fore-teller of the OA, the next site yet to be evident on xray. If you get this cream DO NOT USE IT for home emergency treatments: bug bites, irritated skin and so on.
