Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of a therapeutic Kinesio taping (KT) and physical therapy (PT) modalities for the treatment of de Quervain's disease. [] Key Method Methods: In this prospective randomized clinical study, 30 patients were enrolled into the KT group, and 30 other patients were enrolled into the physical therapy group.

Effect of Kinesio Taping on Pain, Range of Motion, Hand Strength, and Functional Abilities in Patients with Hand Osteoarthritis: A Pilot Randomized Clinical Trial.

Results of this study showed that Kinesio taping and hand exercise may have a positive effect on the improvement of pain, ROM, hand strength, and upper-extremity functional abilities in patients with HOA.

Paraffin bath therapy in De Quervain’s tenosynovitis: a single-blind randomized controlled trial

According to this study, adding paraffin therapy to the combination of the splint and therapeutic exercise positively affects the patient’s treatment outcomes and should be included in the conservative treatment combinations in DQT.

Benefits of Kinesiology Tape on Tendinopathies: A Systematic Review

There is limited evidence to support KT alone for the treatment of tendinopathies beyond the short-term and larger, long-term, high-quality studies are needed to support the theory that tendinopathy can benefit from KT applications.

Conservative management of De Quervain’s tendinopathy with an orthopedic manual physical therapy approach emphasizing first CMC manipulation: a retrospective case series

An impairment based OMPT management approach was effective in managing three patients with De Quervain’s tendinopathy and the inclusion of first CMC manipulation within this multi-modal approach may enhance conservative management of patients with DQT.

Taping for conditions of the musculoskeletal system: an evidence map review

There is mixed quality evidence of effectiveness for the different types of taping methods for different body regions and conditions for musculoskeletal conditions.

Could Kinesio tape replace the bandage in decongestive lymphatic therapy for breast-cancer-related lymphedema? A pilot study

The study results suggest that K-tape could replace the bandage in DLT, and it could be an alternative choice for the breast-cancer-related lymphedema patient with poor short-stretch bandage compliance after 1-month intervention.

Treatment of de Quervain's disease.

Methylprednisolone acetate injection plus casting versus casting alone for the treatment of de Quervain's tenosynovitis.

Support of the wrist with casting alone had less favorable outcome in de Quervain's tenosynovitis and adding methylprednisolone acetate injection into the first dorsal compartment of the wrists is necessary for more optimal results.

The effect of patellar taping on quadriceps peak torque and perceived pain: a preliminary study

In all subjects patella taping reduced perceived pain levels and improved peak torque during both eccentric and concentric contraction modes and at both testing velocities, these changes were all statistically significant.

Tendon rupture as a complication of corticosteroid therapy

Research is needed to find ways to improve the ability to predict approaching death so that the proportion of patients for whom ICP would be appropriate can be increased and the number of patients receiving ICP should be increased.

Corticosteroid Injections: Their Use and Abuse

The authors believe that use of corticosteroids should be limited to the few conditions that have been proved to be positively influenced by them and their use must be accompanied by a well‐orchestrated treatment plan including close follow‐up, physical therapy, and limitation of activities.

Linear hypopigmentation and cutaneous atrophy following intra-articular steroid injections for de Quervain's tendonitis.

The case of a 32-year-old female who received intra-articular corticosteroids for de Quervain's tendonitis and developed bilateral hypopigmented patches near the areas of injection is presented, and a biopsy finding supports a decrease in melanocyte function rather than actual loss of melanocytes as the cause ofHypopigmentation.
