Basal Arthritis

March 21, 2012

What treatments are available for thumb pain associated with basal joint arthritis?

Many people who suffer from mild hand arthritis will benefit from anti-inflammatory drugs and avoiding painful movements.  A cortisone injection usually helps for a short period of time, usually one or two months.  Ice or cold therapy will help in fifteen minute intervals as well.

When it comes to a thumb brace or a thumb splint, an orthopedic appliance that supports the thumb will usually offer more pain relief than just a wrist place.  The best type of thumb brace for basal joint arthritis will reposition the thumb so that the arthritic finger does not hurt.
