In brief: Thumb spica splint

is the best brace for deQ.
you can get them at most drug stores walmart etc. is lie a wrist brace with an extension for the thumb. brace can help but also take nsaids, ICE MASSAGE with water frozen in a dixie cup. if not better a cortisone shot is typically curative with a visit to the orthopedic surgeon.
