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 before trying different combinations of approaches to find the best treatment for you.

Overview

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