If you’ve been experiencing pain on the thumb side of your wrist that travels up your forearm, you may have De Quervain’s Tendonitis. Our team of hand specialists can help with advanced treatments and our years of expertise.

What is De Quervain’s Tendonitis?

De Quervain’s Tendonitis is a painful condition that very commonly affects women in their 40s and 50s. Symptoms include pain and swelling on the thumb side of the wrist, and this pain can also often be felt in the forearm. If you think you may have this issue, our specialists at Regency can diagnose and treat you. 

Causes of De Quervain’s Tendinosis

The cause of De Quervain’s Tendinosis isn’t fully known, but it is believed to be caused by repetitive grasping, pregnancy, or certain inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Anyone can get De Quervain’s Tendinosis; however, it tends to afflict women more often than men.

Treatment for De Quervain’s Tendinosis

Treating De Quervain’s Tendinosis can include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, splints, and/or steroid injections. If none of these treatments work and the condition becomes more painful and long-lasting, surgery is usually recommended.

Finding an experienced specialist

Our hands play an immensely important role in our lives, helping us in a multitude of daily tasks and important jobs. This is why treatment for conditions that impair the hands is so necessary, and why selecting a professional hand surgeon is important. Not only should the surgeon you choose be able to accurately diagnose the problem; they should also be able to treat you carefully, mindfully, and thoroughly. 

Hand surgery should only be performed by a qualified surgeon who has been trained to understand the complexities of the ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, nerves, skin, joints, and blood vessels of the hand, and who has plenty of experience in correcting the hands. At Regency Specialties, we are extremely proud to have such surgeons in our practice.
