What is De Quervain’s tenosynovitis?

De Quervain’s tenosynovitis is a painful condition characterized by the inflammation of the tendons (on the thumb side of the wrist) and the synovial sheath surrounding them. 

Specifically, the two tendons affected are the abductor pollicis longus and the extensor pollicis brevis, which control the movement of the thumb. These tendons travel through a narrow tunnel-like structure called the tendon sheath, located on the side of the wrist near the base of the thumb.

The inflammation of these tendons and the surrounding sheath increases friction during thumb and wrist movement. This can then result in the following symptoms:

  • Pain and swelling
  • Difficulty with thumb and wrist movement
  • Tenderness
  • Catching or snapping sensation
  • Warmth and redness

If these symptoms persist or significantly impact daily activities, it’s advisable to seek medical attention for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
