When treating patients with de Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, they may complain of a swollen thumb and radial-sided wrist pain. The pain may become worse, and may radiate up the thumb or forearm, during activities that require abduction or flexion of the thumb. In most cases, de Quervain’s is caused by overuse or repetitive stress, although the condition may develop for unknown reasons.

With trigger thumb, patients present with a painful thumb that sticks or catches, often audibly, upon flexion or extension. Or, the patient’s thumb may be stuck or locked in the flexed position. Trigger thumb is thus named because once the thumb unlocks (often by passive manipulation), it snaps back much like discharging a trigger on a gun.
Symptoms of Trigger Thumb
- Audible popping sound and pain upon flexion and extension
- Thumb catches or gets stuck in flexion and may need to be pulled straight
