Tenosynovitis

Nature:
Tenosynovitis an inflammation of the tendon sheath. Chronic tenosynovitis occurs when the repetitive activity is mild or intermittent - not enough to cause acute inflammation, but enough to exceed the tendon sheath's ability to lubricate the tendon. As a result, the tendon sheath thickens and gets inflamed.
