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:

Basal Joint Arthritis Brace

August 25, 2015 @ 3:46 pm posted by Brace and Support Help

There’s a new thumb brace available to treat CMC Arthritis.  The CMC Arthritis Thumb Brace is a low-profile, light-weight alternative for treating the thumb pain associated with basal joint arthritis.

A person with CMC arthritis generally feels pain when they pinch their thumb and index finger together.  This action loads the CMC joint which causes the first metacarpal to move.  The movement is what causes the pain.  Why this new thumb brace is so great is that it doesn’t immobilize the thumb joint, which historically all the big, bulky thumb braces are designed to do, this new thumb brace stabilizes the CMC joint.  We don’t want to immobilize.  We want to prevent translation by stabilizing the 1st metacarpal.

The Push Metagrip CMC Thumb Brace uses dynamic stabilization to achieve pain relief.  This thumb brace is constructed of a pliable thermoplastic and an aluminum insert.  The key to this brace is molding the aluminum insert around the thumb once the brace is applied.  This basal joint arthritis brace will “settle” as the brace is worn, conforming to the hand.
