Your doctor may recommend exercises to help your thumb stay limber and may prescribe pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs along with acupuncture or other integrative approaches to reduce your pain and discomfort. If your arthritis is severe, they may recommend surgery to trim your cartilage, fuse bones together or reconstruct the joint.
