Whilst we cannot remove the arthritis, there is a number of options that can help to reduce the symptoms of the arthritis and help you manage more effectively at home, at work, or for sport or other leisure activities. These options may include making orthoses (splints) to either rest the joint/s or support the joints to enable better functional use of the hand. You will likely benefit from customised hand/wrist exercises to assist in maintaining range of movement and strength but an important aspect of learning to manage your arthritis is advising in ways to make tasks easier and less painful for you. Occasionally surgery may be advisable; but surgery is always an elective option and only performed with your total consent.
