Once arthritis begins, it usually becomes worse with age — and often surgery is the best treatment. Arthritis of the thumb is most commonly marked by pain when trying to grip something and throbbing pain at the base of the thumb. If you’re suffering from thumb arthritis, our team of hand specialists can help.

What is thumb arthritis?

Arthritis of the thumb is one of the most common causes of chronic hand pain. This condition tends to afflict women more so than men, and individuals over the age of 40 are more likely to develop it than those who are younger. If you think you may have thumb arthritis, our specialists at Regency can diagnose and treat you. 

How is thumb arthritis treated?

Arthritis of the thumb can be treated with non-surgical methods before considering surgery. Non-surgical treatment options include measuring your activity, anti-inflammatory medication, splints, and/or steroid injections. If none of these treatments help the arthritis to improve, surgery may be recommended. 

Finding an experienced specialist

From cooking to playing instruments to knitting to gardening, our hands are an essential part of our day-to-day lives. This is why it’s so important to treat arthritis when it strikes, and why selecting a professional hand surgeon is so important.

Not only should the surgeon you choose be able to accurately diagnose the problem; they should also be able to treat you carefully, mindfully, and thoroughly with the best options available.

Treatments for the hands should only be performed by a qualified hand surgeon who has been trained to understand the complexities of the ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, nerves, skin, joints, and blood vessels of that specific area, and should be someone who has plenty of experience with hand surgery. At Regency Specialties, we are extremely proud to have such surgeons in our practice. As the top specialists in the region, we will be able to help restore the functionality of your hands.
