Request an Appointment with an Orlando Health Physician

Our goal is to reduce your pain and improve your thumb’s range of motion. Our orthopedic doctors and physical therapists will consider the type of arthritis you have and the severity of your symptoms. We may try different combinations of approaches to find the best treatment for you.

Overview

Our doctors may recommend exercises to help your thumb stay limber. We may prescribe pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs along with acupuncture or other integrative treatments to reduce your pain and discomfort. If your arthritis is severe, we may recommend surgery to trim your cartilage, fuse your bones together or do reconstruction.
