One of the simplest ways to treat thumb arthritis is to try a thumb spica splint brace. The thumb spica splint brace is an adjustable cast that attaches to the wrist and is worn when the thumb is sore, or if doing lots of activity such as housework, gardening, etc. A thumb spica splint can rest the arthritic joint, and relieve the inflammation associated with thumb arthritis.
There are two types of thumb spica splints that can be purchased for treatment of thumb arthritis. The thumb abduction splint is the simplest brace to use for this purpose, but in patients with more severe symptoms, a more significant thumb brace may be needed. In these patients, a thumb spica brace is appropriate. The thumb spica brace is more supportive to the thumb, but more awkward to use in your daily activities.
