De Quervain’s disease

De Quervain’s disease is a syndrome caused by inflammation of the tendon sheath and tendon that bends and spreads the thumb, causing swelling and thickening of the tendon. It is more common in people who use their thumb frequently in the way of spreading their fingers outward and downward, found in females 3–5 times more commonly than in males.

People who are at risk of the disease

  • People who use computers or smartphones for a prolonged period of time, houseworkers, cooks, mechanical workers, gardeners, and people doing heavy lifting works.
  • People performing wrist-intensive activities such as playing sports, weight training, playing music, holding a baby for a long time, knitting, and various crafts.
  • Overweight people; more common in females than males.
  • Pregnant and lactating women as female hormones are associated with the cause of the disease.
