Not sure: What u mean can u explain dip thumb joint? Do u mean DJD as in arthritis? If so it has nothing to do with cts but it could be after a severe crush but many people develop arthritis in their thumbs normally.

Traumatic arthritis : Sounds like the crush to your hand started a cascade of problems. Carpal tunnel can develop for a multitude of problems. It sounds like you are describing joint changes if the ip joint in your thumb. If it was previously injured you are a increased risk for developing arthritis.
