Osteoarthritis in the wrist is one of the most frequently heard injuries. Osteoarthritis is a form of rheumatism . Moreover; it is the most common rheumatic disorder of the musculoskeletal system. Two other common types of rheumatism are: soft tissue rheumatism and inflammatory rheumatism. In 2015, 1.2 million people were diagnosed with 'osteoarthritis' by the general practitioner. The wrist joint was one of the most common joints here. Osteoarthritis is most common in: women, people over 45, people who are overweight (obese), an excessive burden on the body and people with osteoarthritis in the family.
(Wrist) osteoarthritis is a rheumatic disease of the posture and musculoskeletal system. This is an isolated condition, or develops as a result of joint inflammation or weak ligaments. Humanity often thinks of osteoarthritis of joints or bones. 'My joint is worn' or 'I have a worn wrist' are often heard complaints from the GP. This is not entirely correct. It is not a worn joint, but there has been a change in the joint.
A piece of theory: a joint is a connection between two bone parts. Cartilage is located against the articular surface of the bone. This cartilage is a smooth tissue that ensures 'smooth' movement of a joint. This cartilage is deformed in (wrist) osteoarthritis; it has become thinner and softer. This ensures that the joints move less easily, which is inherent to a painful and stiff feeling in the joints. In this case the wrist joint.
The course of wrist osteoarthritis is different per person and per wrist joint. It may be that you have many complaints, but it is also possible that you experience few complaints. What helps to deal with wrist osteoarthritis is by informing and being advised by a specialist. They give advice on medication (doctor), exercise therapy ( physiotherapist ) and medical & orthopedic aids ( ProBrace ).
