The BEST Treatment for De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis in Malasyia

Tendons of the abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis muscles pass in their synovial sheath in a fibro-osseous tunnel at the level of radial styloid. Inflammation of the synovium at this level causes pain at the radial side of the wrist. Local tenderness and swelling may extend into the hand or forearm along the course of the tendons. Crepitus may be felt with movements of the wrist in certain cases. Positive Finkelstein’s test is diagnostic for De Quervain’s tenosynovitis. The thumb is bent and placed in the palm while the wrist is slowly brought towards the ulnar side. Pain can be felt at the base of the thumb near the radial styloid.

This radial-sided tendinopathy is very common in athletes, especially those who participate in racquet sports, ten pin bowlers, rowers and canoeists. Additional stress is exerted on the left thumb of a right-handed golfer during a golf swing, and this will result in injury and pain.
