I also have STT arthritis and it is painful and at times has made me want to stop. I don't want to have surgery yet(late 40's). I have taken a few cortisone injections and that helps at least for a fe

I'm an Orthopaedic Technologist and have dealt with TONS of braces over the years. The best brace for CMC arthritis, IMO, is the Push MetaGrip. Not sure how it would interact with a club shaft, but it

Thank you for that validation.  I ordered one hoping:1. that the STT arthritis I have is located close enough to the CMC to make the brace effective; and 2. That I can figure out a way to swing a club

It's not that this brace is ineffective, I can easily see its strengths, but for my unusual arthritis (my doc says he sees one STT severe arthritis for every 50 CMC arthritis patients he sees) it doesn't stop the pain of the takeaway.


What does stop the pain is adopting a swing like M. Wolff's where the backswing club stands up vertically.  There's very little hand strength required to stand the club up straight up and down.  I'm trying it now and have 50% less pain.  But good luck hitting the ball...especially since I was a 1.4 and whiffed the ball 3x out of 35 balls.  Upside, yes!  Work to get to be a 10 handicapper--alot!

 

I am glad I have found someone in the same boat I am in.  I am glad you saved me $80 in buying that brace as well.  I have been doing some different exercises to strengthen my hand, using heat and doing a steroid treatment with my OT and have had relief, but swinging a golf club really hurts.

 

I am getting a cortisone injection on Tuesday, so I will report back on how that goes.  I am also meeting with a golf mechanics guy to see if we can change anything in my swing. 

 

I am thinking maybe Jumbo grips would help, so I am going to buy a few different ones to test out. I am also considering moving to graphite shafts in my irons, but not sure how if that will help .
