De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis Support
De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis is a painful condition affecting the tendons along the thumb side of the wrist (Abductor Pollicis Longus and Extensor Pollicis Longus).
Symptoms can include pain and swelling near the base of the thumb and difficulty moving and gripping whilst using your thumb and wrist. Since this is an overuse injury, repeated movements of the wrist and thumb will worsen the symptoms.
The best conservative treatment option is a Custom Made Wrist Hand Orthosis (WHO) to immobilise all wrist and thumb movements. This will reduce movement and pain levels.
To determine the most appropriate treatment for you, we recommend booking an initial consultation to discuss your concerns in more detail.
