Wrist conditions

The wrist is a particularly complex structure comprising a multitude of bones, ligaments and joints. The mechanics of the wrist are highly complex. Effective movement and function is dependent on the wrist being flexible, pain free and stable. Many diseases or injuries can cause immediate or secondary wrist problems.

The problems we commonly see at the London Hand clinic include:

  • Soft tissue injuries e.g.
    1. TFCC problems
    2. Scapholunate and lunotriquetral ligament injuries
    3. Mid carpal instabilities
  • Fractures
  • Tenosynovitis
  • Degenerative conditions
