How is De Quervain's tenosynovitis diagnosed?
De Quervain's tenosynovitis is diagnosed based on the typical appearance,
location of pain, and tenderness of the affected wrist. De Quervain's
tenosynovitis is usually associated with pain when the thumb is folded across
the palm and the fingers are flexed over the thumb as the hand is pulled away
from the involved wrist area. (This is referred to as the Finkelstein maneuver.)
