Tenosynovitis is a type of tendon injury. A tendon is a strong tissue that attaches a muscle to a bone. Some tendons are covered by a sheath which makes a tiny amount of lubricating fluid which surrounds the tendon. The fluid helps the tendon to move smoothly when it pulls on the bone it is attached to. Tenosynovitis is inflammation of the tendon sheath, and it commonly occurs around the wrist.

How do we treat tenosynovitis at the Mansfield Clinic?

First of all the precise diagnosis has to be made. This can be quite tricky, and this is where expertise in examination and diagnosis is important, and Dr Allfree has  a lot of experience in diagnosis and treatment of such problems.

Treatment of established cases of tenosynovitis will usually involve rest, manual therapy such as osteopathy, carefully constructed exercise regimes, and sometimes localised steroid injections, depending on the location of your tendinosynovitis.

In cases that do not respond to simple treatments, surgery may need to be considered, although this is rare. Dr Allfree will be able to arrange the appropriate referral.
