Quervain's disease, Thumb Brace

There are many muscles and tendons within the wrist, all of which ensure that we can grasp objects in everyday life. In Quervain's patient, it is the wrist and thumb movements that are very painful.

What is Quervain's disease?

The wrist and thumb can be moved using muscles in the forearm. The muscles that allow movement in the wrist and thumb are attached to the thumb using tendons.

In Quervain's disease, it is the tendon sheath in combination with the tendons that are irritated or inflamed. This can cause complaints on the thumb side in the forearm. Moving the thumb and wrist can be painful as a result.

Cause Quervain's disease?

Quervain's disease is common when the same movements are often repeated. Think for example of the actions: squeezing, lifting. You can also think of sports: hockey, tennis or volleyball. Exercising one and the same movement can cause the tendon to become irritated and overloaded.

Quervain's disease is also more common in young mothers. They make many new and repeatable exercises in caring for the baby. Which can lead to overload and irritation of the tendons in the forearm or thumb.
