De Quervain's tenosynovitis (pronounced da-KWUHR-vanes teena-sine-ah-VITE-us) is a complicated name for a condition that's been referred to as "mother's thumb," "mommy wrist" and "gamer's thumb"—all associated with repetitive use of the hands and wrist. It is a condition that causes extreme pain in the wrist and thumb area.
"Mommy wrist," a nickname for De Quervain's tenosynovitis, can occur in anyone, but women are at higher risk of developing the painful condition according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is a painful condition that occurs when a tendon near the elbow is subjected to repetitive forces. While this issue may occur in golfers, it can happen to anyone and cause pain that spans from the wrist to the elbow on the inside of your arm.
