Nonsurgical Treatments for Osteoarthritis of the Thumb - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Osteoarthritis of the thumb, also known as basal joint arthritis, is a problem with the joint at the base of your thumb. Smooth cartilage covering the bones in your joint has worn away, causing pain and other symptoms. There is no cure for osteoarthritis. And, it usually gets worse over time. But, treatments that dont require surgery can help relieve symptoms in the early stages. For example, you can put ice on the joint several times a day. Pinching with your thumb may increase the stress on the joint and result in more pain. To help reduce your pain, your healthcare provider may give you tips on how to change the way you pinch or grasp objects. You may also be advised to wear a splint to limit movement. This allows the joint some time to rest and heal. Medicines, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, acetaminophen, or aspirin can help reduce pain and swelling. In addition to pain medicine, you may also receive a steroid injection directly into your joint to reduce the swelling and provide pain relief. If you have questions about osteoarthritis of the thumb, or which treatment option may be best for you, talk to your healthcare provider.
