Treatment of de Quervain’s tenosynovitis is aimed at relieving the pain caused by irritation and swelling, and allowing the inflammation to subside. Conservative approaches activity modification, splints, or in severe cases a cast, anti-inflammatory medication, and cortisone injections. If symptoms persist, surgery can be considered, and involves releasing the compressive sheath that constricts the tendon.
