Tendinitis, the inflammation of a tendon, and its synovial sheath are referred to as tenosynovitis (synovitis). Texting and typing are two common causes of this inflammation, but other causes include systemic illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis and sarcoidosis, as well as infections that follow penetrating wounds like an animal or human bites or thorn prick injuries. The most frequently afflicted tendons are those in the hand and wrist. Patients often complain of pain that gets worse with activity, swelling in the tendons that are hurt, and pain along the tendon course when the tendon is stretched. In cases of bacterial tenosynovitis, the diagnosis is established clinically, but further pathogen isolation may be necessary for the therapy planning. De Quervain's tenosynovitis may develop if thumbs and fingers are repeatedly overused. The size of several smartphones has increased from their forerunners, A man in his 30s who purchased a smartphone (Smartphone) and used his thumb to hold it eventually acquired de Quervain's tenosynovitis. His symptoms improved after they stopped using their thumb to grip the phone, and he was able to heal without any special care. The phenomenon should be known to healthcare professionals, especially with regard to recently purchased smartphones.
