What is quervain?
Quervain syndrome is the result of irritation or swelling of the tendons on the thumb side of the wrist. The irritation thickens the tendon, making it less easy to move. The swelling on the thumb side can cause pain problems. This pain gets worse when you grab something or make a fist.
Causes of the Quervain
Quervain can be caused by the inflammation and swelling of the casings of the tendons. Repeated movements of the thumb and unusual wrist positions may play a role.
If quervain occurs, there may be multiple complaints in the thumb and wrist. These are limitations that affect daily life.
Symptoms of Quervainmay include:
- Pain on the thumb side of the wrist
- Gradual or acute pain on the wrist
- Radiated pain to forearm
- Difficulty in moving wrist or thumb
- Pain when moving wrist or thumb

How do you tape the quervain?
After a brace, the quervain tap gives the best support to the thumb and wrist. The purpose of taping is to ensure that the tendon can not stretch too far: this prevents further overloading of the muscles. It has to be taken into account that the tape is placed correctly, otherwise it can backfire.
Use professional sports tape or bandages and leave lesser tape behind. This prevents skin damage and postponement of injury treatment around the wrist.
Start by making a foundation. Here you build a strip in the shape of a ring around the base of the wrist. Then create a side loop. This is laid out in the cavity from your wrist to the thumb. Then apply a front loop. The front loop is applied in the opposite way to the side loop. Finally, tape the distal joint.
