Flexor Carpi Ulnaris Tendonitis

Flexor Carpi Ulnaris Tendonitis is inflammation of the wrist flexor tendon at the pinky side of the wrist.

Excessive wrist movements in construction and in pitchers with proximal kinetic chain deficiencies may stress this musculotendinous unit.

Rest, anti-inflammatory medication and splinting usually suffice. Occasionally a cortisone injection may be helpful.
