Diagnosis and treatment
To diagnose tendinitis, the doctor will first do a physical assessment and ask the patient questions about the pain. If the doctor suspects de Quervain’s tenosynovitis, they will do the Finkelstein test. To confirm the diagnosis, the doctor may request an ultrasound, an MRI or any other diagnostic examination they judge appropriate. If any of these techniques confirm tendinitis, the doctor may prescribe cortisone injection under fluoroscopy, as well as medication to relieve the pain and inflammation.
