Thumb pain usually presents as pain at the base of the thumb and wrist. A notable thumb pain condition includes De Quervain Syndrome, also known by many other names such as gamer's thumb, mother's wrist, and mommy thumb. This condition in particular is a degenerative (microscopic injury) condition of the sheath (extensor retinaculum) that surrounds the tendons passing over the thumb side of the wrist. These tendons control the motions of the thumb, most specifically the movement of thumb towards the wrist. When this sheath becomes injured or inflamed, the tendons become entrapped and cause pain during movement of the thumb. Thickening of the tendons from overuse or trauma will also cause problems when the tendons need to slide beneath the sheath. Women are considered at higher risk due to the sharper angles of the bones in the wrist, but the actual cause is somewhat unknown. Many believe overuse is the primary cause leading to inflammation. This hypothesis is backed up by noting that most patients with this pain are new mothers who repeatedly lift their growing babies. Symptoms are most often noted in both wrists and to the same degree of pain, indicating that more overuse activity causes more inflammation leading to pain. When these conditions are present, movement of the thumb is restrained and further perpetuates the inflammatory condition and may create swelling in more severe cases. Pain is noted during thumb and wrist motion along with thickening and hardening of the area at the base of the thumb. Difficulty gripping, tenderness at the base of the thumb, and swelling are common symptoms. Pain is usually slight to moderate, and extreme pain may be an indication of a more serious condition. Treatment of the pain is determined more by noting what has worked in the past rather than scientific data. KT Tape has been shown to provide support during motion of the thumb and wrist, and has markedly reduced pain in many subjects. KT Tape also increases circulation to reduce inflammation and speed the healing process. Corticosteroid injections are thought to be successful, but do need to be weighed against the negative side-effects of increased degenerative effects. Surgery has been well accepted and successful in almost all cases, but conservative therapies are highly preferred prior to making this leap. Ice after activity, rest, and avoidance of activities that incite pain are all important steps to avoid surgery. A focus on proper lifting mechanics will also help to avoid these symptoms in the future. For more resources, please visit the KT Tape website at www.kttape.com.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes the condition of trigger thumb. Stenosing tenosynovitis. Many conditions of the thumb can cause pain. Trigger thumb is often called stenosing tenosynovitis and it can be bilateral. Trigger thumb can be associated with painful triggering or locking. Focal degenerative thickening of the flexor tendon (flexor pollicis longus) creates what looks like a nodule (localized swelling) at the level of the metacarpal phalangeal joint of the thumb. This limits the tensor excursion with tendon stretch. The nodule gets jammed beneath the A1 pulley. This occurs with a painful snap or click, similar to a trigger getting pulled or released with either flexion or extension of the thumb. A small change in the size between the flexor tendon diameter and the A1 pulley will affect the thumb flexion and extension. When the nodule gets jammed, the thumb becomes locked. Idiopathic trigger thumb occurs more in women. It occurs during the 5th or 6th decade of life and is often bilateral. Causes •Idiopathic •Diabetes •Osteoarthritis •Inflammatory arthritis •Gout. Patients with trigger thumb most likely develop carpal tunnel syndrome or De Quervain’s syndrome. Patient with trigger thumb may develop the condition from playing too much video games. Treatment •Anti-inflammatory medication •Injection into the sheath not the tendon •Ultrasound is a great modality for precise injection. •Consider surgery in difficult cases: oRelease of the pully oAvoid injury to the radial digital nerve oThe radial digital nerve crosses oblique over the sheath proximal to the A1 pulley.

By Arthur L. Endersson, M.D., FACS If your hand gets numb or tingly (pins and needles) occasionally and especially wakes you up during your sleep, you should be concerned. You might think you slept wrong, but after a few nights of waking up you may think your arthritis flaring up. Maybe it’s worse: maybe it’s carpal tunnel syndrome. Both arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome can produce these. Carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis symptoms can be very similar, so it's vital to know the features of each. Also, if you already have arthritis, you should understand that it raises your risk of having carpal tunnel syndrome. WHAT IS CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME? Inside your wrist joint there is a narrow space formed between your ligaments and bones called the “carpal tunnel”. The median nerve passes through this tunnel. The median nerve controls sensations from your thumb, index and middle fingers. The carpal tunnel is also a corridor for your flexor tendons (responsible for making a fist). When the flexor tendons become swollen and inflamed, they can irritate the median nerve. This causes pain, numbness and tingling in your hand, fingers and arm – and this is the cause of the condition known called carpal tunnel syndrome. Both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis - raise your risk for having carpal tunnel syndrome because they contribute to tendon inflammation. SIGNS & SYMPTOMS UNIQUE TO CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME Commonly known and understood is that arthritis can cause symptoms just like carpal tunnel syndrome, including tingling and pain in your hand. It can be puzzling to differentiate carpal tunnel syndrome from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. But there are symptoms that are specific and distinctive of carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome causes tingling and numbness that: • Is activated by holding a phone or driving • Is activated by repetitive motion • Affects your thumb and first 2 or 3 fingers, but not your little finger • Wakes you up at night or is worse in the morning • Is relieved when you shake out your hand (true mostly in the early stages of carpal tunnel syndrome) • Radiates up your forearm toward your elbow • Can be reproduced by over-flexing your wrist (bending your fingers toward your forearm) The best way to treat carpal tunnel syndrome is with a traction brace. It relieves pressure on you median nerve and allows the swelling to subside. The most acclaimed traction brace is the CPR (which means “Carpal Pain Relief”). This simple product is extremely affordable and easy to use. And it’s proven to be highly effective in relieving the pain, numbness and tingling of carpal tunnel syndrome. You wear the CPR like a wrist brace, and doing so relieves the pressure on your median nerve as you go about your day. Almost instantly, pain, tingling, numbness, soreness, and weakness are gone forever. The CPR is the most affordable and most effective remedy you can use. Patients say the CPR is the LAST treatment they have ever used, because symptoms disappear for good. Get rid of carpal tunnel today. Get the CPR and get fast relief! http://www.CarpalPainRelief.com

http://www.handmasterplus.com If you are experiencing arthritis (aka osteoarthritis) in the wrist, hand, fingers and/or thumb, full range of motion exercise with controlled resistance, is essential. First, be sure you can open and close your hand through full range of motion without pain (clear this through your health care professional). Once you can, start with Handmaster Plus soft and progress arthritis exercise as necessary. Chronic small range of motion habits in life and workplace stress small areas of the joint, thus causing wear and tear and creating poor blood flow for repair and maintenance (wellness). Most hand, thumb and finger exercise is through such a small range of motion that is does not greatly help. And may cause more problems. Handmaster Plus soft, developed by Dr. Zachary, allows easy arthritis exercise through full natural range of motion to produce healing via maximum blood flow and stimulation.

Arthritis: Base of the Thumb What is it? In a normal joint, cartilage covers the end of the bones and serves as a shock absorber to allow smooth, pain-free movement. In osteoarthritis (OA, or "degenerative arthritis") the cartilage layer wears out, resulting in direct contact between the bones and producing pain and deformity. One of the most common joints to develop OA in the hand is the base of the thumb. The thumb basal joint, also called the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint, is a specialized saddle-shaped joint that is formed by a small bone of the wrist (trapezium) and the first bone of the thumb (metacarpal). The saddle shaped joint allows the thumb to have a wide range of motions, including up, down, across the palm, and the ability to pinch www.assh.org

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes the condition known as De Quervain's Syndrome. The Finkelstein’s Test is used to diagnose the condition of De Quervain syndrome (stenosing tenosynovitis of the first dorsal compartment of the wrist). The muscles of the first dorsal compartment of the wrist allow for thumb motion. The two tendons that are involved are the abductor pollicis longus and the extensor pollicis brevis. Remember, the extensor pollicis longus is located in the third compartment. With De Quervain syndrome, there will be pain and swelling over the radial side of the wrist (thumb side). It occurs due to inflammation, thickening, and stenosis of the synovial sheath. Inflammation of the synovial sheath (tunnel) that surrounds the two tendons that control movement of the thumb (abductor pollicis longus & extensor pollicis brevis). The physician will confirm the findings by doing the Finkelstein’s test. The test is conducted by having the patient make a fist with the fingers closed over the thumb and the wrist is bent towards the little finger. An ulnarly directed force is then applied to the wrist to stretch the involved tendons. This is a provocative test that is done to stretch the involved tendons and see if the condition is painful or not. A positive test is indicated by sharp, local pain over the radial aspect of the wrist. Activities that may cause De Quervain’s Syndrome include: •Twisting/wringing out wet towels •Hammering •Skiing •Lifting heave objects •Caring for children oPeople who care for babies and young children commonly experience De Quervain’s due to holding or carrying the child. The physician should differentiate between De Quervain’s Syndrome, Intersection Syndrome, and Wartenberg’s Syndrome. Finkelstein’s Test is used to diagnose De Quervain’s syndrome in patients who have pain on the radial side of the wrist. Differential Diagnosis: •Intersection Syndrome oPain felt on the top of the forearm where two muscles that connect to the thumb cross over the underlying wrist tendons. oPain is located about 4 cm from the wrist joint. oThe two tendons of the wrist are the extensor carpi radialis longus and extensor carpi radialis brevis. oPain is increased by extension and flexion of the wrist (felt more on the top of the forearm) oIntersection syndrome pain is more proximal than the pain associated with De Quervain’s syndrome. •Wartenberg’s Syndrome oIrritation of the superficial branch of the radial nerve oThe pain is located 8 cm proximal to the radial styloid oThe patient will be unable to tolerate wearing a tight bracelet or a wrist watch oThere will be pain in addition to numbness, tingling, and paresthesia on the posterior aspect of the thumb o The patient will not complain about weakness o If you tap over the area of the nerve, the patient will have symptoms (positive Tinel’s sign).

Investigators analyzed 12 studies with about 500 patients. Although the splints usually did not improve strength or hand mobility, the splints had an effect on pain comparable to that achieved with anti-inflammatory drugs. Notably, in one study, hand pain was cut by 50% for patients who wore a rigid splint every night for one year.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes the condition of rheumatoid arthritis, the etiology, signs and symptoms, the diagnostic tests and indications, and the treatment options and prognosis. Rheumatoid Arthritis involves the synovium of the joints. The condition of rheumatoid arthritis will result in deformities. Rheumatoid Arthritis occurs in females more than males. There may be a hereditary component with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis has spontaneous remissions and exacerbations. The disease can have a systemic nature. Pain and stiffness of joints especially in the morning (morning stiffness). Rheumatoid Arthritis is typically polyarticular, bilateral and symmetrical and most commonly affects the hands and feet. x-rays show periarticular erosions at the time of diagnosis. Osteopenia and minimal osteophyte formation favor the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Pathogenesis Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease. The disease has two components: immunological reaction. Increased degradative enzymes. The IgM (Rheumatoid factor) is produced by the plasma cell as ana antibody to the native IgG, which is altered in RA. 70% of patient with RA have rheumatoid factor positive. Leucocytes are attracted to the immune complex forming deposits over the inflammatory surface of the synovium. These leucocytes ingest fibrin and immune complex and is called the Rheumatoid cells. The leucocytes release lysosomal enzymes that cause acute inflammatory response and tissue necrosis as well as inflammatory mediators ( IL-1, IL-6, TNF alpha). The chondrocytes respond to stimulation by TNF- alpha, IL-1 and other inflammatory mediators causing cells to become activated and secrete more metalloproteinases which lead to cartilage damage. The synovium becomes hypertrophied (pannus), showing intimal hyperplasia and infiltration by plasma cells and lymphocytes. Stages of Rheumatoid Arthritis Early: acute: hot swollen tender joints (synovitis) •MCP swelling •Wrist swelling •Flexor sheath synovitis Complicated: digital vasculitis, ecchymosis, skin atrophy, nodules. Advanced •Swelling of MCP joints •Lateral slippage of extensor tendon ruptures •Ulnar deviation of fingers •Xrays show destruction of MCP with subluxation, ulnar deviation and wrist destruction. •Finger deformities: Mallet, boutonniere, Swan neck The thumb is also involved. These changes occur due to proliferation, inflammation and hypertrophy of the synovium. Involvement of the distal radioulnar joint is usually associated with rupture of the extensor digiti minimi. Rheumatoid nodules 25% of patients with RA will have subcutaneous nodules on extensor surfaces of elbow and forearm. Nodules are often multiple and seen along the ulnar margin of the forearm or pulp of the digits. Vasculitis is more common in patients with SC nodules, it is strongly seropositive disease (aggressive) with less favorable prognosis. Treatment •Synovitis: splint and medical treatment •Joint space narrowing, bone erosions and osteopenia: synovectomy. •Joint destruction/fixed deformity/ loss of hand function: surgery based on condition Before operating on RA patients, x-ray of the cervical spine is needed because the patient may have subluxation of C1-C2. Metacarpophalangeal joint arthroplasty of the fingers usually results in decreased extensor lag and improvement of the ulnar drift.

De Quervain’s tensynovitis is a painful condition where there is an irritation of the tendons located at the base of the thumb. Mainly there are two tendons that get irritated, they are the abductor policis longus and extensor policis brevis. These tendons are covered with a sheath along with the first extensor compartment. The cause of the problem is due to over use of the wrist, especially the thumb and the wrist, maybe obesity, pregnancy, rheumatoid arthritis are other causes that can cause these symptoms. Patient presents with pain at the base of the thumb. There will be swelling at the base of the thumb and also you can hear a snapping when you try to move your thumb across your fingers, so these are the presenting symptoms. So how do you diagnose the symptom or the condition, this condition is diagnosed by presenting these compliant. So the doctor examines your thumb and your wrist and simple test which we need to do is we need to close the thumb and flex your fingers and try to move it ulnarwards. So when you do this you will get pain across this direction. So that is the most diagnostic test for this De Quervain’s tensynovitis. This is called as Finkelstein’s test. The treatment option are divided into two. One is the surgical option and other one is non-surgical option. 80 to 90% of the patients are treated non surgically by avoiding certain activities; like you can use a splint, splint the thumb in this direction, where the thumb is an extension and you can also use local ice remedy and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and physical therapy helps in controlling the symptoms. Coming to the surgical intervention, when all these symptoms fail as the patient is not having any relief, then we do a mini open release of the first compartment or the extensor compartment and the compartments are free and these are the treatment for De Quervain’s tensynovitis.

View our Base of thumb Arthritus explanation video. You can also visit our website for more info: http://www.capehandsurgery.co.za Osteoarthritus refers to a process where cartilage is lost, exposing the subchondral bone and causing pain. This process is incompletely understood. The base of the thumb (carpo-metacarpal joint) is very commonly affected by osteoarthritis. The thumb has the ability to move in multiple planes and to pinch and oppose (touch the little finger). This is made possible by the carpo-metacarpal joint (CMC joint) and more specifically the metacarpal of the thumb articulating on the trapezium. This joint is a saddle joint and the metacarpal can circumduct (move 360 degrees) on the trapezium. Unfortunately when osteoarthritis is present in this joint, all thumb function becomes painful and especially pinching becomes very uncomfortable. It is thought that the thumb contributes 50-60% to hand function: therefore all hand function like key pinch, power pinch, grip strength and fine motoric movements become difficult when this joint is affected.

It is important not to over exert yourself and best to seek medical advice before using an exercise program and important you stop should your pain increase.

By Arthur L. Endersson, M.D., FACS If you occasionally wake up during the night to find that your hand is numb and tingling (pins and needles), you might start to get concerned. It is even more concerning if you start waking up more and more often. You will first think you slept on your arm or hand wrong. But after several nights of this you might think it’s your arthritis acting up – or maybe worse -- that it’s carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Either arthritis or CTS can produce these symptoms of waking with a painful, tingly or numb hand. CTS symptoms can be very similar to arthritis symptoms, so it's important to know the characteristics of each condition. And if you already have arthritis, it raises your risk for getting carpal tunnel syndrome. WHAT IS CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME? Deep inside your wrist joint you have a narrow space that's formed in between your bones and ligaments. This is called the “carpal tunnel”. The median nerve runs through this tunnel, and the median nerve controls all of the sensations in your thumb, index finger, and middle finger. The carpal tunnel is also a passageway for your flexor tendons (the ones responsible for closing your fingers and making a fist). When those flexor tendons get inflamed, they can irritate the median nerve. That causes pain, numbness and tingling in your fingers, hand and arm. This is the underlying cause of the condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. The two most common types of arthritis - rheumatoid and osteoarthritis - raise the risk for having CTS. That’s because they contribute to the inflammation of the carpal tunnel tendons. SYMPTOMS UNIQUE TO CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME It’s well known that arthritis causes symptoms like pain and tingling of your hand. But it can be confusing to distinguish rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis from carpal tunnel syndrome. There are, however signs and symptoms that are specific and distinctive of CTS. Carpal tunnel syndrome causes tingling and numbness that: • Affects your thumb and first 2 or 3 fingers, but not your little finger • Wakes you up at night or is worse in the morning • Gets better if you shake your hand (true mostly in the early stages of CTS) • Is activated by holding a phone or driving • Is activated by repetitive motion • Radiates up your forearm toward your elbow • Can be reproduced by over-flexing your wrist (bending your fingers toward your forearm) Carpal tunnel syndrome is best treated with a traction brace. This relieves pressure on you median nerve and allows the inflammation to subside. The most acclaimed traction brace is the CPR (which means “Carpal Pain Relief”). This simple product is extremely affordable and easy to use. And it’s proven to be highly effective in relieving the pain, numbness and tingling of carpal tunnel syndrome. You wear the CPR like a wrist brace, and doing so relieves the pressure on your median nerve as you go about your day. Almost instantly, pain, tingling, numbness, soreness, and weakness are gone forever. Simply put, the CPR is the most affordable and most effective remedy you can use. Patients say the CPR is the LAST treatment they have ever used, because symptoms disappear for good. Get rid of carpal tunnel today. Get the CPR and get fast relief! http://www.CarpalPainRelief.com
