Thumb Arthiritis

I can't properly use my thumb. It is swollen and when I try to bend my thumb it hurts which I can't. I think I have Thumb Arthritis. Please suggest any non-surgical treatment.

A thumb base joint small dose cortisone injection and then thumb splint for a short period would be most appropriate.
