Regardless of which area of the body the condition hits osteoarthritis remains a degenerative condition which can affect any joint in the body, with Thumb OA being one of the most common forms of the condition.
There is no cure for osteoarthritis, however the use of bracing can help with mobility or function of a joint. In the case of Thumb OA a support for arthritis thumb can help by maintaining alignment of the offending bones at night, reducing pain and offering a better nights sleep as a result.
When it comes to Thumb OA a professional diagnosis is advised to understand the severity of the condition and the most effective treatment options available to you, of which a Thumb OA brace is one of them.
The thumb-wrist-orthosis is used to manage Carpometacarpal (CMC) Osteoarthritis (OA) by providing immobilisation in anatomical position of the trapeziometacarpal joint (basically the joint at the base of the thumb which is responsible for movement of the thumb). The brace also provides for adjustment of the first thumb/index finger gap in a pain free position. Any degradation of cartilage leading to bone on bone contact can be painful, especially on joints we use everyday such as the knee or thumb.
The brace is intended to be worn at night. Simply place the wrist/thumb into the brace and fasten the straps until they feel tight enough and the thumb is immobilised in the brace.
It is this immobilisation at night which can reduce pain levels, offering a more comfortable nights sleep.

During the day however you need a different type of brace which doesn’t impact on the functionality of your hand, with the Formfit Thumb OA Day Support for Arthritic Thumb an option.
