Sprained Thumb

A thumb sprain is an injury to the main ligament in the thumb. Ligaments are soft tissue structures that connect two bones to make a functioning, stable joint. If you tear the main ligament at the base of your thumb, your pinch and grasp ability will be weak. There may or may not be pain right away. Other symptoms include bruising, tenderness, and swelling.
