Osteoarthritis of the thumb?

Osteoarthritis in the thumb is a rheumatic disease that can occur in the entire body. It is often thought that osteoarthritis is a wear and tear on the joints or bones. That is why you often hear someone say, "My joints or my fingers are worn out ?!" However, the word "worn out" is not entirely correct. A so-called change has occurred in the joints.

An extra piece of insight: a joint is a connection between two bone parts. Cartilage is located against the articular surface of the bone. Cartilage is smooth tissue that allows the joint to hinge smoothly. In arthrosis in the thumb, this cartilage is deformed; it has become thinner and softer. This causes the joints to move less easily, making movement in the fingers feel painful and stiff; osteoarthritis of the thumb.

Osteoarthritis Thumb Brace Symptoms

  • Suffering from stiffness in the thumb
  • Swollen thumb
  • Painful and sensitive thumb
  • Restriction of movement in the thumb joint
  • A 'knuckle' appearance
