Pain Relief for Your Thumb

Pain relief for osteoarthritis suffers or injury prevention for those at risk from Repetitive Strain Injury

Carpometacarpal CMC joint pain in the thumb

The Carpometacarpal (CMC) joint is where the thumb attaches to the bones of the wrist.  It is used predominantly when pinching or gripping so issues with the joint can severely affect hand function.

The two main issues affecting the CMC joint are:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Overuse from repetitive movements

Osteoarthritis of the CMC joint is up to 20 times more common in women than men.
