De Quervain's Tenosynovitis: Revolutionizing Treatment with SoftWave Therapy

Published November 17th, 2023 by

De Quervain's tenosynovitis, commonly known as "Mommy Thumb" or "Gamer's Thumb," is a painful condition affecting the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist. At Back to Health Chiropractic in Santa Clarita, CA, led by Dr. Carolyn Griffin, we understand the discomfort and limitations this condition can cause. We are proud to offer an innovative treatment option, SoftWave Therapy, providing hope and healing for those suffering from this ailment.

Understanding De Quervain's Tenosynovitis

De Quervain's tenosynovitis occurs when the tendons around the base of the thumb become irritated or constricted, leading to pain and swelling. This condition can be caused by repetitive hand and wrist movements, overuse, or hormonal changes. Symptoms typically include pain on the thumb side of the wrist, swelling, difficulty moving the thumb and wrist, and sometimes a catching or snapping sensation.

Traditional Treatment Approaches

Historically, treatments for De Quervain's tenosynovitis have included rest, splinting, anti-inflammatory medications, and corticosteroid injections. While these methods can offer temporary relief, they often do not provide long-lasting results. In more severe cases, surgery may be considered, but it involves inherent risks and recovery time.

The SoftWave Therapy Advantage

At Back to Health Chiropractic, we offer SoftWave Therapy, a non-invasive, non-surgical, and medication-free approach to treating De Quervain's tenosynovitis. This advanced therapy uses electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms. The benefits of SoftWave Therapy include:

  • Decreasing Pain and Inflammation: The therapy effectively reduces pain and inflammation, with many patients experiencing significant relief after a few sessions.
  • Improved Blood Flow and Circulation: SoftWave Therapy promotes the formation of new blood vessels, enhancing circulation to the injured area and facilitating healing.
  • Stem Cell Activation and Migration: The therapy activates and mobilizes stem cells to the injured tendons, aiding in tissue repair and regeneration.
  • Enhanced Mobility and Function: By reducing inflammation and promoting tissue repair, SoftWave Therapy helps restore mobility and function to the thumb and wrist.
