Get A Grip on Thumb Arthritis

It’s painful and makes simple tasks like opening jars or gripping doorknobs difficult. We’re talking about arthritis at the base of your thumb, and it happens when the cartilage in your carpometacarpal (CMC) joint wears away. Thumb arthritis is common and treatable, and hand specialists Ryan Calfee, MD, MSc, and Lindley Wall, MD, MSc, will discuss how to diagnose CMC arthritis and what treatment options are available to help patients find relief.
