Could your thumb pain be basal joint arthritis?  

Over time, the cartilage at the base of the thumb can break down and become inflamed, showing signs of arthritis. The condition is painful and can make everyday activities harder.  Wear and tear is typically the cause, so it’s most common among adults over 40 and those that perform repetitive or excessive hand movements.  Research (Journal of Orthopedic & Sports PT, 2013 Vol:43 Issue:4) reveals a combination of manual joint therapy, neural mobilization and active exercise is effective at treating pain of the thumb basal joint.  The Lakeshore Physical Therapy Instagram page shares thumb exercises to get you started, if you are experiencing pain.  Additional treatment options are available from our experienced physical therapists and no referral is required to get started!
