Thumb CMC/Basal Joint Arthritis or Arthritis of the Hand Joints can appear early in life. The constant swiveling and pivoting motions of the basal joint, at the base of the thumb, tends to wear it out easily. While total joint reconstruction surgery may improve the condition for some, new problems in the thumb joint may develop over time, causing such symptoms as numbness, tenderness, or reduced range of motion. Regenexx procedures for hands and wrists utilize the natural healing abilities of your body.
The Regenexx treatment for CMC Arthritis and other injuries and conditions in the hand joints and wrist utilizes your own bone marrow concentrate containing stem cells, blood platelets, and/or growth factors to help repair damaged areas that are causing pain.
