Non-operative hand & wrist arthritis treatments

When your hand and wrist have arthritis, it can be hard to hold things or close your hand. These treatments can help without surgery.

Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicines may help with arthritis pain and function in your hand. Speak with your doctor about the type you should take and the dose.

Steroid injections into the joints of your hand may help. Your doctor may also give you a brace or splint to wear.

Hand therapy can give you exercises to do to to help reduce the pain and improve function.

If non-surgical treatments don’t work, arthritis surgery may be helpful.
