CMC Arthritis E-Book
First CMC Arthritis is a staple of most hand therapy clinics and managing conservative and post operative care for this population requires an understanding of the anatomy and a few handy tricks to get the best outcomes.

With printable home program handouts for your patients and treatment guidelines for you, this e-book also helps guide treatment planning.
Finally, we include step-by-step instructions for the most common orthoses for support of the thumb for both conservative and post operative care.
