CMC Thumb Arthritis

January 25, 2018 @ 10:21 am posted by Brace and Support Help

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.

CMC Thumb Arthritis

January 10, 2018 @ 10:17 am posted by Brace and Support Help

The thumb pain associated with CMC Arthritis can be severe.  A decrease in range of motion and strength can make it painful to shake hands, open doors, and forget about opening that jar of pickles.  Treatment can involve splints, braces, and medications.  If its really bad surgery may be an option.

Pain is the primary symptom.  It’s felt at the base of the thumb when gripping, grasping, pinching or forcing an object.  The thumb can also be stiff, tender, and swollen.  The thumb will get weaker and lose range of motion.  And it may start to look a bit deformed.

CMC arthritis is common in women over 40 years old.  Obesity, previous injury,  and heredity are also risk factors.  CMC Arthritis used to be called “Game Keepers” thumb.   Back in the day the people that twisted the necks of rabbits for a living (game keepers) would develop CMC arthritis from the repetitive motion of breaking necks.  Gross.

a CMC Thumb brace is a great treatment option.  Learn more about the thumb splint shown below:
