A New Splint Design for the CMC Thumb Arthritis

January 24, 2018

Purchase this CMC thumb brace.

As we get older osteoarthritis will develop.  It’s just a normal part of aging.  And it usually develops in the joints that we use the most and receive the most stress.  That’s why osteoarthritis is often called, “wear and tear arthritis”.  Pain and disability are the most common complaints of CMC thumb arthritis.

Thumb splints and thumb braces come in many shapes and sizes.  Beware of using a thumb brace that completely immobilizes the thumb.  You need to use your thumb or the muscles surrounding it will atrophy (shrink).  You want the opposite.  You want to use your thumb so the muscles surrounding it get stronger.  So you need a thumb brace that positions your thumb in such a way that it reduces pain but still allows you to use it.

That’s what the thumb brace pictured above can do.  The CMC Thumb Brace is easily put on and taken off with one hand, and provides support that doesn’t limit other joint movement.  It is durable, flexible, and is easily cleaned.  And most important it will reduce your pain.
