My 7 year old daughter's thumb keeps "popping out". It has happened a couple of times in the past few days.
Whenver she tries to lift or touch something using her thumb, she gets this bulge at the base of the thumb on top of her hand (thumb knuckle). Her thumb then leans all the way down at a strange angle. It painful but she is able to "click" it back herself by moving her thumb out and up. I have strapped it up to immobilise the thumb, what else can I do and why is this happening?
Hi thomic, i've had extensive hand surgeries and problems with my thumb joint, i can only recommend that you research doctors in your area. Don't and i repeat DON'T just go to the nearest orthpedic hand doctor, i did and he caused more damage than what i went in for. get the best you can, do your research. your insurance most likely cover it, its just a pain driving farther to see a doctor. good luck Phill
