Two Year Old With Thumb Tendonitis

Here is an interesting question from one of our readers.

I took her in because her left thumb at the top joint seemed to be popping out of place and was swelling. Her doctor said that she had tendonitis and that there was nothing we could do because she probably wouldn’t let us splint it or ice it. But my question is, is it common for a two year old to get tendonitis. I thought tendonitis usually came with age.
