De Quervain Syndrome

De Quervain syndrome is a condition that is sometimes called “text thumb” or “tech thumb”.

Repetitive movement of thumb as is the case with excessive use of smartphones can cause tenosynovitis of the tendons controlling movement of the thumb.

This is an inflammation of the sheaths or tunnel that the tendon runs through and these tendons are connected to muscles that move the thumb.

This condition may develop into a chronic inflammatory condition that may present with a burning sensation with possible swelling (edema) to the muscles near the thumb.

In more advanced cases people sometimes have difficulty with gripping objects and are not able to use their cell phone without experiencing pain or discomfort.

Vitality Health New York provides you with the experience of our Chiropractor, Physical Therapist, Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist and Medical Doctor who will correctly identify the cause of pain and symptoms.
