Suggest ayurvedic treatment for de quervain s disease

My husband has been diagnosed with dequervain disease. He went for physiotheraphy and also took light laser treatment. It is week since he took this laser treatment. No improvement Now it is more than four months and the nagging pain continues when he does certain actions like brushing his teeth, tucking in his shirt etc. Is there any cure in ayurveda for this? will it be cured permanently? Please advise. Thanks

1. de quervian disease is also associated with other conditions like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis,and hypothyroidism [so please check with necessary Examination and Investigations to rule out the same].

. Avoid repetitive motions: constant gripping, forceful bending of wrist,engaging in lifting or pinching activities without sufficient rest periods or stretches.
. Avoid or limit the activity that aggravates the pain. [ place the affected wrist in a removable splint to immobilize the thumb and prevent further irritation and inflammation.]
. Applying ice at the styloid process may decrease inflammation and symptoms.
. when symptoms start to improve, add gentle stretching exercises (Myofascial release techniques) to prevent recurrent inflammation.
. Prescription medicines for the same are: Rheumalya forte, rheumalya liniment, Mahavishgarbh tail, MAha vaat vidhvansan ras, Shuddh Kuchla.

PS. An ergonomic assessment and training to prevent further damage, along with recommendations for optimal ways for you to continue your activities of daily living.

. If conservative management fail to give relief, then surgical management becomes appropriate.
