Nonsurgical Treatments for Osteoarthritis of the Thumb - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Osteoarthritis of the thumb, also known as basal joint arthritis, is a problem with the joint at the base of your thumb. Smooth cartilage covering the bones in your joint has worn away, causing pain and other symptoms. There is no cure for osteoarthritis. And, it usually gets worse over time. But, treatments that dont require surgery can help relieve symptoms in the early stages. For example, you can put ice on the joint several times a day. Pinching with your thumb may increase the stress on the joint and result in more pain. To help reduce your pain, your healthcare provider may give you tips on how to change the way you pinch or grasp objects. You may also be advised to wear a splint to limit movement. This allows the joint some time to rest and heal. Medicines, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, acetaminophen, or aspirin can help reduce pain and swelling. In addition to pain medicine, you may also receive a steroid injection directly into your joint to reduce the swelling and provide pain relief. If you have questions about osteoarthritis of the thumb, or which treatment option may be best for you, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."

Todd J. Kenyon
Attorney at Law
Minneapolis, MN

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."

Paul L. Redfearn
The Redfearn Law Firm, P.C.
Kansas City, MO

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."
