De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis Treatment in Gwinnett

Are you looking for effective De Quervain’s tenosynovitis pain treatment and relief in the Gwinnett area? The thumbs rely on tendons, which are the bands of tissue that connect muscles to bone for movement. When inflammation affects the synovium, the sheath around the tendon, it is called tenosynovitis. De Quervain’s tenosynovitis is an inflammation of the thumb that causes hand pain and functional issues. Medici Spine & Pain offers effective treatments for relief and the improvement of thumb function for our patients with De Quervain’s tenosynovitis.

With De Quervain’s tenosynovitis, or tendonitis, either the thumb tendons, synovium or both are affected by inflammation. This can cause friction when moving the thumb, causing pain and limited function. The symptoms can include:

  • Pain or tenderness in the thumb or interior side of wrist
  • Increased pain when gripping or moving the thumb
  • Pain can extend from the thumb up the wrist and forearm
  • A popping or snapping feeling when moving the thumb

Women are up to ten times more likely to have De Quervain’s tenosynovitis than men. Common causes are injuries to the thumb, repetitive gripping with the thumb, arthritis and direct blows to the thumb. Activities that require constant grasping like tennis or driving can aggravate or cause this tendon condition.

Treating Thumb Tendonitis

Inflammation is the main cause of De Quervain’s tenosynovitis symptoms. Treatments that can relieve the inflammation on the thumb tendons and the synovium can help minimize symptoms. Steroid injections, immobilizing the thumb and other treatments can help improve the condition. Our pain physicians at Medici Spine & Pain will create an effective treatment plan to give patients with thumb tendonitis relief and improved gripping function.

If you have thumb pain that is not healing, come see us at Medici Spine & Pain. We have locations in the Gwinnett County area that offer pain management and rehabilitation for a wide variety of health conditions. Contact us to schedule an appointment for a consultation.

We can help you!

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
