It doesn’t have so much to do with an immobility in my case. My physical therapists in the past have told me that mine is caused by an inflammation of the tendons, which is typically what causes this sort of injury.
I have exercises but I’m not finding that they help lesson irritation which is why I ask about extra support. I know that strengthening my wrists will help but I’m looking for assistance while I do that. [/quote]
Just to clarify thing, I don’t think that saying your injury (chronic tendonitis) is caused by inflammation is the best way to put it. By definition, tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon and is the injury in itself. You have to determine what is causing that inflammation (poor mobility, restricted muscle tissues, etc). And actually if your injury is chronic and been going on for some time now, you most likely have a tendonosis. But that is besides the point.
Did the PT ever check the mobility of your metacarpals? of each of your carpals? if the radial/ulnar junction was gliding properly with the carpals? Not just gross ROM but the mobility of each segment.
What types of exercises were you given to perform? Were you given reasoning and purpose for each?
How is your gross ROM at your wrist for pronation and supination? Do either the flexor/pronator mass or extensor/supinator mass have excessive adhesions and restrictions?
