The hand and its digits play a pivotal role in everyday life. Holding a glass, opening a jar or picking up small objects are actions humans perform countless times. The thumb carries a specific function.It is opposable to all fingers, allowing for the hand to grab and pinch. In a healthy hand this is taken for granted. When the thumb is injured, either due to an acute injury or a chronic illness, the patient’s daily life can be severely impacted due to pain and loss of function.
The objective of any treatment is to get patients back to using their hand, and back to their normal daily life.
