CMC Thumb Arthritis

July 26, 2017

CMC Thumb Arthritis

When cartilage erodes, arthritis can happen.   Without this protective tissue, bones that comprise the joint rub together. Carpometacarpal (CMC) joint arthritis happens at the thumb’s base, right at the wrist.   When the ends of bones rub together it causes pain and makes it difficult to grab or pinch.

Basal joint arthritis (CMC joint arthritis) is the most common place for arthritis to affect the hands.  It’s recommended to treat this condition with non-invasive, simple options.

SYMPTOMS

  • Thumb Pain at the base of the thumb.
  • Thumb pain when trying to grip or pinch.
  • The thumb is painful or tender when you rub, squeeze, or touch the base of the thumb.

How to treat CMC Arthritis?

Wearing a splint or brace that positions your thumb can reduce pain. The best thumb braces position the thumb joint.

This is a product that can help.
