wrist tendonitis


My daughter, a gymnast, has bilateral wrist tendonitis with orders for O.T./P.T. We just started seeing a hand therapist who wants my daughter to rest her wrists for the second week ( no gymnastics using wrist ).
My daughter is obviously upset she can’t work out. What is the usual course for therapy – my impression from our therapist is rest (amount of time to be determined) and then exercises to strenghten before returning to gymnastics.
