KT Tape: Thumb
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.

Rheumatoid Arthritis of the hand - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
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 tenosynovitis: Causes, Signs, Diagnosis & Treatment - Dr. Yogishwar A V
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.

Arthritis in the thumb
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

How to Tell Arthritis from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
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

How to Fix Wrist Pain | Working Out (6 WAYS!)
Build muscle and end joint pain - http://athleanx.com/x/athlete Subscribe to this channel here - http://bit.ly/2b0coMW Wrist pain during workouts is one of the most common joint ailments you can experience. In this video, I’m going to show you how to fix workout related wrist pain by going over the best ways to address joint and muscle causes as well as things you can do on specific exercises. To start, I think it is beneficial to try and pinpoint where in your wrist you are feeling pain. For example if you feel wrist soreness on the back side of your wrist in the area of the carpal bones, then you are likely dealing with an impingement or joint immobility issue rather than a muscular one. Here you would want to incorporate the joint mobilization for your wrist to help restore normal extension. This simple wrist mobilization is one that you can do yourself with no equipment at all. Simply squeeze your wrist with your thumb and forefinger and distract that carpal bones just enough to clear the end of the radius. From here, glide the wrist radially and move your wrist into extension by pushing the hand palm down into a bench. You should not experience pain when you do this. Do it for a few reps and then retest your range of motion and you should notice that it has improved significantly. If on the other hand your discomfort is more on the underside of your forearm and tends to run up and down the forearm when your wrist is bent backwards, then this is more indicative of a muscle tightness. Here you don’t only want to just stretch the muscles of the forearm by bending your wrist back and keeping your fingers straight but you want to manipulate the tissues themselves with some myofascial release. You can do this by pressing your forearm into a solid surface (like a squat rack upright) and then flossing the muscles through the compressed area by moving the wrist around in circles as well as back and forth into flexion and extension. Do this until you feel the pain subside in your forearms. The next step once you have addressed the type of pain that you feel in your wrists when working out is to identify the specific exercises that you get soreness in when you lift. The most common ones that I covered in this video are the bench press, pushups, bicep curls and the front and back squats. Each one of them demands a little something different than the others and therefore must be addressed individually. Through some fine tuned careful changes in the position of the grip or the placement of the bar in your hands, you will see that you are able to correct the pain that you are feeling without diminishing the effectiveness of the exercises. This is the same approach that we use that has led to ATHLEAN-X becoming the go to choice for professional athletes in their training and workouts. We not only show you how to make gains in muscle size and how to lose fat but we put the science into everything we do and keep a priority on doing it safely so you can keep lifting at a high level for a long period of time. You can get the program by visiting http://athleanx.com and selecting from our various workouts based on your individual training goals.

wrist pain,causes and treatment  PART I. Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes Wrist Pain, Carpal Tunnel, anatomy of the Wrist . there are eight carpal bones of the wrist that fit into a shallow socket formed by the bones of the forearm. Carpal tunnel syndrome Pressure placed on the median nerve due to thickening of the transverse carpal ligament. Thenar atrophy is commonly associated with severe carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome can occur during pregnancy since the swelling brought on by pregnancy may compress the median nerve in the hand, causing the fingers to feel numb. These symptoms typically go away after delivery of the baby. Common causes of CTS include: •Obesity •Hypothyroidism •Arthritis •Diabetes •Trauma •Repetitive work (typing, lifting) •Vibration Carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to numbness, tingling or weakness in the hand and fingers. The numbness usually occurs at night because we tend to sleep with our wrists flexed. The Tinel’s test is used to determine symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. The test is considered positive if symptoms of tingling worsen while tapping on the median nerve at the wrist. The Phalen's maneuver is a diagnostic test performed to determine if the patient has carpal tunnel syndrome. The back of the hands are pressed together, compressing the nerve, which may cause symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Treatment includes •Anti-inflammatory medication •Splint •Injections •Carpal tunnel release: performed by cutting through the transverse carpal ligament. Carpal tunnel release allows the median nerve to pass freely through the tunnel to receive sensations from the thumb, index, and middle fingers of the hand. This is similar to a tunnel being opened or widened so a large truck can pass through.

About wrist tendonitis
When the covering (or sheath) of a tendon is inflamed, which usually happens, it’s called tendonitis. However the condition known as tendonitis goes by many different names, all depending on where it occurs. Thus, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, pitcher’s shoulder, swimmers shoulder and jumper’s knee are all forms of tendonitis. The signs and symptoms of wrist tendonitis occur either where the tendon attaches to the bone or along its length. The main symptoms include pain, tenderness, and mild swelling. In severe but rare cases, wrist tendonitis can result in a small tear or complete rupture of the tendon, and that requires surgery. There are a number of risk factors for wrist tendonitis but the most common are repetitive strain, incorrect posture, poor stretching or conditioning before physical activity, abnormal bone or joint and stresses from other conditions like arthritis, thyroid disorders or gout. Most cases of wrist tendonitis will respond well to self-care measures. The most common cases of wrist tendonitis are treated very successfully with rest and bracing. Use a hand brace at night, while you sleep, to immobilize your hand. During the day, use a brace that puts traction on your wrist joint, to ease inflammation inside. And don’t rush things: incomplete rehabilitation or a hasty return to activity can slow the healing process or lead to re-injury. The best method to completely eliminate symptoms of tendonitis is to use the CPR brace. CPR is proven to be highly effective in relieving the pain, numbness and tingling. The CPR is affordable therapy that works fast. It’s also the only traction brace that works like this. Patients find the CPR to be the best and most effective treatment available. So get rid of tendonitis today -- Get the CPR and get fast relief! http://www.CarpalPainRelief.com

https://www.facebook.com/groups/Orfit.splinting/ : Join the 'Orfit Splinting & Rehabilitation Group' on Facebook to connect with other Orfit users. Here, you will be able to discuss and ask questions about cases and share ideas. One of the most frequently fabricated orthoses is the volar wrist cock- up orthosis. This orthosis holds the wrist in extension but allows for functional use of the thumb and fingers. The wrist cock-up orthosis is commonly prescribed for patients with carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist sprains or tendinitis, wrist arthritis or following forearm and carpal surgeries or fractures. The orthosis should support the forearm by covering two thirds of its length. Care should be taken not to block full flexion of the ulnar digits at the distal border. The demonstrated volar wrist cock-up orthosis is made of Orfit Flex NS, 3.2 mm. More information can be found on our website: http://www.orfit.com/en/orfit-flex/

3D Printed Custom Splints
Read more: http://3dprintingindustry.com/2014/07/03/3d-printed-custom-splints-ease-pain-arthritis/ Video transcript: For the many sufferers of Rheumatoid arthritis, a new type of 3D printed splint has been designed that is intended to provide far greater support than ever before. The design and manufacturing process empowers clinicians with no experience in computer-aided design to provide custom-made wrist splints. Dr. Abby Paterson, from the Design School at Loughborough University has designed the software for the customised production of 3D printed splints, which hold the potential to be much more comfortable, also more attractive, and with lower costs than existing solutions. Dr. Paterson explained that thanks to the capabilities of Objet Connex 3D printers, it is possible to integrate multiple materials in a single splint such as rubber-like integral hinges or cushioning features. The splints are made by scanning a patient’s arm in the appropriate position, getting precise dimensions that will be be customised and therefore provide the most comfortable fit for the individual. Then the splint is 3D printed. The precise, complex geometries form a lattice design that aids ventilation for the patient’s arm, and can be used with any type of fastening that the patient requires for ease of use. Doctors Bibb and Paterson from Loughborough University are currently now performing a thorough cost analysis of service provision for the custom splints, with estimates that the 3D printed splints should be more cost-efficient than equivalents produced by traditional means of manufacturing. The doctors project that with financial backing they could perfect the software to begin empowering clinicians to customise these splints within just eighteen months. With arthritis affecting millions across the globe, and taking a major toll on productivity year in and year out, these customized splints could be a welcome relief.

Base of thumb arthritis
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.
