Ostearthritis of the hand and wrist destroys the cartilage that lines the joints. This is a wear and tear type of arthritis, which compares to the joint destruction and deformities of rheumatoid arthritis.
Since there is no joint cartilage or joint fluid, the two bones rub against each other causing pain, swelling, further joint destruction and deformity.
Treatment for arthritis in the hands and wrists involve nonsurgical and surgical alternatives. Non surgical alternatives include, medication, steroid injections, immobilization and wrist braces and supports.
You should consult with your treating doctor to determine the best course of treatment for your condition.
