Tenosynovitis: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment

Tenosynovitis

The tendons in the body pass through tube-like structures called synovial sheaths.


Causes

Tenosynovitis is caused by an acute strain of the muscles, tendons and ligaments. The strain causes the internal part of the tendon sheath to become rough. The tendon and the sheath surrounding the tendon start to rub against each other. This can cause an inflammation of the tendon sheath which then exerts pressure on the tendon. One of the complications of tenosynovitis is when the tendon sheath and the tendon sticks together, limiting the efficiency of the tendon.

Symptoms

Extreme pain in the affected area – at first only during movement and later even when at rest.

Treatment

  • Ice or cold packs
  • Avoid strenuous movements
  • In more serous cases a splint may be put on the joint to help rest the tendons.
  • Anti-inflammatory or painkilling medication can be taken.
