Injury of other specified muscle, fascia, tendon or bursa at forearm level can be caused by a traumatic event such as a fall, repetitive motions, or excessive force.
Diagnosis is made by physical examination and imaging studies such as x-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans.
Differential diagnosis includes other conditions such as fractures, ligament strains, and bursitis.
Treatment typically includes rest, ice, compression, elevation, and physical therapy. Surgery may be necessary if the injury is severe.
Prognosis depends on the severity and type of injury. Most injuries of other specified muscle, fascia, tendon or bursa at forearm level heal with rest and physical therapy, however, some may require surgery.
