Hello and welcome to "Ask A Doctor"

I have gone through your query. Tendinitis and bursitis take 4 to 6 weeks to heal. I would suggest you not to move your hand at least in the range which causes pain for a minimum of 2 weeks so that it can heal completely.

You can place an ice pack if you have any swelling. If not, you can use a heat bag followed by gel such as volini for pain relief.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to discuss further.
