Marijuana can help you overcome the pain and swelling associated with tenosynovitis.
This disorder (Tenosynovitis) also goes by Tendon Sheath Inflammation.
Some of the common causes of this condition are infection, traumatic injuries, and autoimmune diseases.
Once you have it, your joints swell out and grow tender, and the skin in the affected part reddens.
Hands and feet are the common parts to be affected by tendon sheath inflammation.
Aside from getting therapy and swallowing pain relievers, patients are also asked not to exert strain on the affected parts.
The best thing about this condition is that the patient can recover completely within a month of treatment.
However, the ease of managing this disorder depends on how early the condition was diagnosed and treated.
If it is allowed to progress to an advanced stage, the tendons may become restricted and cause severe complications.
This condition is likely to be manifest in people with physically strenuous occupations e.g. soldiers and handymen.
Tenosynovitis will cause inflammation in your sheath, but many patients use marijuana to eliminate pain and inflammation.
