Finger Arthritis

March 27, 2012

 

Which finger joints are most likely to be effected by osteoarthritis?

The mid-finger (PIP – proximal interphalangeal joint) and fingertip (DIP – distal interphalangeal joints) knuckles are most likely to suffer.  These joints can become swollen, stiff, and enlarged.  This condition is usually the result of years of wear-and tear.

Joint health supplements, anti-inflammatory medications, therapy, cortisone injections, cold therapy and finger splints can all be all used to treat osteoarthritis of the finger.
