Depending upon your injury or condition, you may need to:
- Wear a splint, pad or assistive device to reduce movement or pressure and allow healing
- Change your activities to limit painful movements
- See an occupational therapist to help you regain strength, flexibility and range of motion
- Massage the affected skin and tissues to improve blood flow, help with muscle relaxation and lessen scar tissue formation
- Receive an injection into the site of inflammation
- Take anti-inflammatory medicine to ease swelling and pain
An outpatient surgery may be needed to relieve pain and improve function. You and your doctor will decide whether surgery is right for you and what type of surgery may be best.
