In adults with first carpometacarpal degenerative joint disease, does a dynamic stabilization home exercise program (HEP) decrease pain and increase function more than a traditional HEP? Research is needed to assess if this approach will lead to greater function and less pain than the currently accepted approach. It is important for OTs to have a holistic approach that includes traditional joint protection, orthosis use, and self-management of HEPs.
