Brief except from the episode:
De Quervains Tenosynovitis, pain on the thumb side of the wrist. Officially it is inflammation of the sheath surrounding the tendons of the thumb. The Abductor Pollicis and the Extensor Pollicis Longus. Which also makes up what is called the “Anatomical Snuffbox”.
If you make a thumbs up, there will be two tendons present, these are Abductor Pollicis and Extensor Pollicis Longus. The space between them is the “Anatomical Snuffbox”.
Typically De Quervains Tenosynovitis is pretty painful. It is however, easy to use the Finkelsteins test to assess if you have De Quervains Tenosynovitis on your own (Click for video).
If you are dealing with De Quervains Tenosynovitis hopefully it is still early on. Typically these symptoms come around quickly, if you take care of them early they will go away quickly. Don’t let these symptoms linger!
