Summary
Objective: to assess the frequency of De Quervain’s
tenosynovitis and its association with SMS texting.
Method: a cross-sectional survey was conducted
among undergraduate students studying in differ-
ent physical therapy schools of Karachi belong-
ing to both public and private sectors. Sample
size was 300 students which were selected
through convenience sampling. Data was collect-
ed through self-administered questionnaire and
severity of the pain was assessed through Univer-
sal Pain Assessment Tool and De Quervains
tenosynovitis was diagnosed through Finkelstein
test. Data entry and analysis were done using
computer software SPSS version 20. Frequency
and percentages were taken for categorical vari-
able. Chi-square was applied to determine associ-
ation between different variables and Finkelstein
test. P value < 0.05 was considered significant.
Results: male/female ratio was 1:4. Regarding the
use of cell phones, majority 165 (55%) were using
regular cell phones, another 89 (30%) were using
touch screen and 38 (13%) were using QWERTY
key pads. Almost half of the students were fre-
q
uently using cell phones for texting, out of them
132 (44%) texted less than 50 messages per day.
Another 96 (32%) did texting between 50-100 texts.
Out of 300 students who filled the questionnaire
125 (42%) students were experiencing pain in the
thumb/wrist. Finkelstein test when done on stu-
dents almost half (n=149) showed positive results.
It was noted that as frequency of mobile phone us-
age increased progressively more and more people
showed positive Finkelstein Test (p value 0.000).
Conclusion: the result of the study concluded
that almost half of the students use their mobile
phones for texting more than 50 S.M.S per day
and because of their mobile key pads and high
speed of texting they experienced pain and weak-
ness over the base of the thumb/wrist which
shows the De Quervain’s positive in that students
and there is a positive association between the
thumb pain and frequent text messaging.
KEY WORDS: De Quervains tenosynovitis, Finkel-
stein test, SMS texting.
