THUMB TENDINOSIS

I realize that thumb pain can be debilitating.  Sometimes people have pain on the palm side of their thumb.  This is frequently caused by FASCIAL ADHESIONS.  Oftentimes it’s related to something called DUPUYTREN’S CONTRACTURE (Trigger Fingers / Trigger Thumb).  However, the most common place to find thumb dysfunction is in the extensor tendons found on the nail side of the thumb.  Tendinosis in this part of the thumb is known as DeQUERVAIN’S SYNDROME.  Click the link for a simple DIY test to see if this might be your problem.
