Basal Joint Arthritis

Osteoarthritis of the thumb (basal joint arthritis) is the most common type of hand arthritis, occurring earlier and most often in women.

The need for carpal tunnel surgery is expanding due to repetitive stress damage that can often occur from demanding workplaces, sports activities and more.


This condition can occur anywhere in the body where muscle and bone are connected, very often in the hand.
