In brief: DeQuervain's options
It depends on the stage of the problem and what has or hasn't worked for the individual.
The way i treat a new case with no previous treatment is splinting and activity modification for work and home along with a trial of antiinflammatory medication. Further treatment depends on the success or lack thereof and may include steroid injection, casting, physical therapy and surgery.

In brief: Injection or surgery
Try a cortisone shot and brace first.
If that doesn't work then surgery.
