What is De Quervain's tenosynovitis?

Updated: Feb 24

The main symptoms of De Quervain's tenosynovitis are pain and tenderness in the wrist, often below the base of the thumb.

This condition is often seen in people who use repetitive motion (such as young mothers who are picking up and putting down their babies over and over again.

Luckily, De Quervain's tenosynovitis is fairly easy to treat without surgery. We may use pain injections, medication, or physical therapy to combat the condition. In, rare cases we will perform surgery.

Treatment is generally successful when begun early.
