The tendons to these muscles pass through the first extensor compartment at the wrist: therefore increased static activity of these muscles coupled with the metacarpophalangeal joint held in extension may increase the risk of developing tenosynovitis at this compartment site/e.g., de Quervain's disease: Moore, 1997).
The tendons of both of these muscles are involved in de Quervain's disease. Therefore, an increase in load on either or both introduces a potential increase in risk.
