There are many causes of a DeQuervain’s syndrome

DeQuervain’s Syndrome is caused by repetitive motions of the thumb and wrist, inflammation of tendons at the base of the thumb, or direct trauma to the area. Overuse of small muscles around the base of the thumb due to occupational activity, sports, or hobby-related activity are strong contributors to this condition. In addition, certain medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis may increase a person’s risk for developing DeQuervain’s Syndrome. It is important to address symptoms early on in order to reduce both pain and disability associated with this condition.

What is DeQuervain’s syndrome?

DeQuervain’s Syndrome, also known as stenosing tenosynovitis of the first dorsal compartment of the wrist, is a condition that consists of inflammation in the tendons to the two thumb muscles at the base of the thumb. It typically manifests itself as pain in this area when used for movements such as gripping, twisting or pinching. People suffering from DeQuervain’s may also experience swelling and tenderness in their thumb and wrist. This condition usually occurs due to overuse or repetitive motion activities but can be triggered by trauma or an underlying medical disorder.
