Basal thumb arthritis Orange County is osteoarthritis that has developed at the joint between the wrist and the base of the thumb. The specific cause for this is unknown. Weight and age are significant factors as well as the type of work you do. It can cause pain, swelling, stiffness and decreased usage of tue hand. The strength of the hand decreases and the motions once performed with ease bring great discomfort. Tasks as simple as opening a jar or turning a doorknob become difficult. Applying splints and taking over the counter pain relievers can lessen the pain. Corticosteriod injections are recommended if the pain persists or worsens. In the worse case scenario surgery, called an arthroscopy, might be required. A tiny incision is made in the hand. A tubular instrument containing a camera and necessary instruments are inserted through the opening into the joint to clean away damage tissue. There are other types of surgery for more severe situations. All of these surgeries are done as an outpatient procedure. Basal Thumb Arthritis Doctor Orange County wants you to know that they have experience with this type of surgery.
HSOC also treats TOS, rheumatoid arthritis, and has an orthopedic hand surgeon and carpal tunnel syndrome surgeon on board.
