De Quervain's Tenosynovitis (cont.)

Medical Author:

What is the outlook (prognosis) with De Quervain's tenosynovitis?

Excellent. The patient can generally return to full function after the inflammation quiets down with treatment. Sometimes bracing is used during future activities that involve repetitive wrist motion.
