Wrist tendonitis is defined as inflammation of the tendons in the wrist. Tendonitis is now more commonly referred to by health professionals as overuse tendinopathy. This condition is localized pain in or around the tendon. When this occurs it is due to a band of fibrous tissue that connects to the muscle of the bone and transmits the force and action of the muscle.
Typically, your tendons can withstand a lot of bending, stretching and twisting movements since they are designed for this. Although, they may become inflamed from traumatic injury which leaves your wrist with torn fibers or other damage, causing wrist tendonitis.
Depending on the condition, the problems which occur may vary. With some conditions, more inflammation is common while others might be affected by chronic damage to the tendon.
