Just diagnosed. Impossible to do any push exercises. pulling ok. Amazing a very small section of cartilage diminishment can have such a major impact on strength.

Anyone had it before and returned to lifting as before after therapy or surgery?


FYI, Thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) joint osteoarthritis (OA) is the second most common form of hand OA, affecting between 20% and 30% of the pop.

Well to update this. Have been using daily doses of Collagen II, MSM, Hyaluronic Acid, Glucosamine/Chondrotin, Boron, Fish Oil and tumeric/curcumin and pain has entirely disappeared.

Switched to DBs for push and all is good. Numbers are starting to creep back up to pre-Covid gym shutdownlevel. Do Squat/DL 3x per week now compared to 2x pre-covid.

So it is a happy ending.

The supps above came from the regimen actor James Colburn used when battling arthritis. It gave him the ability to continue his career. Well only older folk will recall his work and coolness.
