John Sheldon December 18, 2013 Reply I would be glad to know how surgery has treated Alan Campbell’s tendonitis, as I have been suffering this in my right thumb ever since rowing in the Jubilee Pageant, with no cure in sight. I understand that the painful condition is known as de Quervain’s sino-tendonitis, or at one time “washerwoman’s thumb”! James Brown January 3, 2014 Reply John It may be interssection syndrome, this is much more likely in rowers than de Quervains. If rest does not help (the wrist splint should also have a thumb extension), then a guided steroid injection is the treatment. Go see an orthopaedic hand surgeon to get the right diagnosis, the two conditions are similar.
