What is Immobilization of TMC Joint?

Immobilization of TMC joint is a surgical procedure that involves the fixation of the bones and ligaments in the temporomandibular joint. The temporomandibular joint is also known as TMJ and it is located at the base of the skull. It is responsible for articulation and enables you to chew food. The TMJ has two parts: upper and lower.

The upper part is formed by an arch-shaped plate that holds the disc between its two arms. The disc is attached to your skull by ligaments and muscles. The lower part consists of condyles, which are oval-shaped. They are connected to the jawbone by joints that allow movement in different directions when you eat or speak or when you chew food.

Immobilization of TMC joint involves placing screws or plates inside this joint so that it remains stable after surgery or injury. It may also be used as a preventive measure against further damage to this particular area if there are symptoms such as pain, stiffness or clicking noises while opening/closing your mouth while chewing food (TMJ).

What is TMC Joint?

The first metacarpal bone of the thumb and the trapezium (carpal) bone of the wrist are connected by a joint called TMC joint. The TMC joint has a special structure that allows it to be mobile in all directions and also helps to maintain stability during movements.

The joint is located at the base of your thumb. It consists of two bones: First metacarpal bone and trapezium (carpal) bone. These two bones are connected together by ligaments called collateral ligaments (one on each side). These ligaments help hold these bones together so they don’t move too far apart from each other.

Why we need to immobilize TMC Joint?

The thumb metacarpal bone is the first metacarpal bone of the thumb and the trapezium (carpal) bone of the wrist. The metacarpals are bones in your hand that connect your fingers to your wrist. These bones are connected by ligaments and tendons, which help you move your fingers.

The thumb metacarpal bone is connected to other bones in your hand by tendons and ligaments, which allow you to move your fingers. If these connective tissues become injured or damaged, they can cause pain and swelling in your hand. Immobilizing the joint may help relieve some of this pain by limiting movement around it.

What are the methods used to immobilize TMC Joint?

There are several methods to immobilize the TMC joint of the hand.

The most common method is to use a splint that extends from the base of the thumb, across your palm, and up to your wrist. This is often used with a sling to support your arm and protect it from moving too much.

Another method is called a “sling-and-splint” treatment, which involves placing a sling under your arm and then using a splint to protect your hand from moving too much.

A third option is called a “CMC joint block,” which uses an injection of medicine into that joint space to reduce pain and swelling.

Finally, if you have severe damage to your hand or wrist, surgery may be necessary to repair it.

What is the procedure of Immoblization of TMC Joint?

The TMC joint is the joint between the first metacarpal (the first finger) and the trapezium (the uppermost bone of the wrist). The TMC joint is often affected by arthritis, which can cause pain, swelling and stiffness in the finger. Immobilization is a method used to treat these symptoms.

When you immobilize your finger, you are using a splint or a cast to limit its movement. This keeps your joints from moving around and causing more inflammation or pain. In some cases, doctors may recommend that you wear an external fixator around your wrist while wearing a splint or cast on your fingers.

Immobilization can be done at home or in an occupational medical setting. If you’re having trouble with gripping objects or opening jars because of arthritis, it might be time to try this treatment method!

What are the braces used to Immobilize TMC Joint?

There are a few different braces that can be used to immobilize the TMC joint of the hand. The most common is the thumb spica splint, which is worn for about six weeks after surgery. It’s usually made of fiberglass or plastic and has a built-in hinge that allows you to move your thumb but keeps it in place while it heals.

Another option is a dorsal thumb spica splint, which goes over your entire hand and wrist and immobilizes all of those joints at once. This type of brace is recommended if you have arthritis in one or both of your hands or if you have diabetes, which can cause nerve damage that makes it more difficult for you to use your hand.
