CMC Arthritis – Pain Relief

May 11, 2017

A thumb brace or thumb splint is an effective way to treat CMC Arthritis, or basal joint arthritis.  The best braces will hold the thumb in a pain-free position.  Neoprene or fabric thumb braces will provide warmth and compression.  Do you experience pain when you pinch, like when you’re using a key or a pen?  Is the area around the base of your thumb tender when you press on or around the joint?  A brace may help.  A thumb brace is an inexpensive treatment alternative to surgery or medications.
