Tendon Sheath Injections
In regards to pain of the wrist and hands, there are several injections that we can provide for pain relief. In terms of things like trigger finger or Dupuytren’s Contracture, we can actually inject the tendon sheath to provide pain control and a reduction in inflammation for the patients. This can also be provided for patients who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, we can use that in the office as a simple injection to treat pain. In addition to that, we can place the patient in nighttime splints, or perform nerve conduction studies to further delineate the pathology at hand. If patients do not get better with conservative care, which includes injections, physical therapy and/or night splints, we can refer them for surgical consultation.
