และหลีกเลี่ยงการเคลื่อนไหวของมือ เช่นการหยิบของหนัก การเขียน หรือการบิดหมุนข้อมือ ควรให้ข้อมืออยู่ในแนวระนาบเดียวกับแขน ถ้าไปพบแพทย์ในเบื้องต้น แพทย์อาจจะแนะนำให้เข้าเฝือกบริเวณแขนและนิ้วโป้ง เพื่อให้ข้อมือและกระดูกข้อต่อบริเวณใต้นิ้วโป้งอยู่กับที่ ลดการใช้งานของเส้นเอ็น รวมถึงรับประทานยาแก้อักเสบเพื่อลดอาการบวมของเยื่อหุ้มเอ็นและบรรเทาอาการเจ็บปวดได้             หลักสำคัญในการดูแลตัวเองเพื่อระงับอาการปวด และลดการอักเสบที่เกิดขึ้นก็คือผู้ป่วยต้องพักผ่อนให้เต็มที่ งดใช้งานบริเวณที่เส้นเอ็นอักเสบ ควรประคบด้วยความเย็นเป็นครั้งคราว การใช้ยาแก้ปวดช่วยบรรเทาอาการได้ตามสมควร การใช้ยาลดการอักเสบช่วยให้อาการดีขึ้นในรายที่เป็นมาก แพทย์อาจพิจารณาฉีดยา Corticosteroid เข้าไปรอบๆ บริเวณเส้นเอ็นที่เกิดการอักเสบ ช่วยลดการอักเสบและบรรเทาอาการปวดได้มาก แต่ทั้งนี้ไม่ควรฉีดบ่อย จะทำให้เส้นเอ็นไม่แข็งแรงและอาจฉีกขาดได้             ในกรณีที่เส้นเอ็นเกิดการฉีกขาด ก็จะมีวิธีการรักษาโดยการผ่าตัด เทคนิคการซ่อมเส้นเอ็นทำได้หลายแบบ รวมทั้งการผ่าตัดเพื่อเสริมความแข็งแรงของเส้นเอ็นก็สามารถทำได้ ที่สำคัญคือหากมีอาการที่สงสัยว่าจะเป็นเอ็นอักเสบที่ข้อมือ ควรมาพบแพทย์
