On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.
The exercises below are to maintain joint and soft tissue mobility, they should not be pushed through significant pain. The key with DeQuervain’s Tenosynovitis is to allow inflammation to settle therefore it is essential to rest and offload the tissues. We would recommend purchasing a thumb splint to offload for short term use (1-4 weeks). Typically these can be purchased for around £10.
Click here for a more detailed explanation of the condition including typical causes, common symptoms and additional advice on how it can be treated and managed effectively.
Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.
If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
