DeQuervain's Syndrome is a devastating injury that afflicts millions of people worldwide each year. Symptoms include pain, popping sensations at the MP and CMC joints and overall weakness. The pain is usually on the posterior portion of the thumb joint due to the thumb adductor and flexor muscles becoming too short and tight, therefore causing the joint to shift out of alignment towards the short, tight side. This shift causes the thumb abductor and extensor muscles to become severely strained as they attempt to hold the joint in its correct functional position, resulting in micro-tears of the abductor and extensor muscles at the CMC and MP joints but also the wearing of the anterior portion of the thumb joint which can lead to osteoarthritis. But, with some basic massage, stretches and exercises, you can correct the muscle imbalance and return the joint to its normal anatomical and functional position.
