What is wrist tendinosis?

Wrist tendinosis – called DeQuervain’s tendinosis – is when the tendons at the base of the thumb are irritated, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic SurgeonsOff Site Icon (AAOS).

With this condition, the tendons and their covering layers are swollen and can cause pain and soreness along the side of the thumb and the wrist, according to the AAOS.
