How is De Quervain's tenosynovitis treated?
Treatments for De Quervain's tenosynovitis includes any combination of rest,
splinting, ice, antiinflammation medication, and/or cortisone injection.
Cortisone injection is extremely effective and is generally the optimal
treatment. Normal activity may be resumed within three weeks after an injection.
Surgery is only rarely necessary and usually reserved for persisting
inflammation after failure of at least one cortisone injection.
