de Quervain's Tenosynovitis Hand Thumb

de Quervain’s Syndrome: Symptoms and Treatment


De Quervain’s Syndrome
is a condition that can cause you to feel pain in your hand and thumb, especially when trying to grasp or twist something. It can happen to anyone, and doctors are not sure what causes it. The condition involves painful tendons on the thumb side of your wrist. This short video will explain the condition and what will happen if you  need surgery.

In de Quervain’s, the tunnel through which the tendons run becomes too narrow, causing pain.┬áSome treatment options for this condition include:

  • Splint, which limits motion
  • Aspirin
  • Steroid injection
  • Surgery
