Pat from Sherwood Park asks: I have DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis. What are my treatment options?

DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis (see our regional MSK disorders webpage) is a tendonitis found at the base of the thumb extending up the lateral aspect of the forearm. There are many available treatment options, including splinting, anti-inflammatories, and perhaps most important, physiotherapy. A cortisone injection is also an option for some patients. If possible, it is important to identify the underlying cause to prevent it from returning.
