SPORTS INJURY & TREATMENT

WRIST

It is made up of two bones of the forearm (the radius and ulna) and eight carpal bones which are connected by many ligaments. Wrist injuries are common in people who use their wrist a lot on an everyday basis. Namely:

  • LIGAMENT INJURY:

    Since ligaments connect all our bones, any injury in the form of a fall, twist, or a sudden movement may damage the ligaments (TFCC ligament).

  • CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME:

    It is a condition wherein the median nerve is pressed or squeezed at the wrist. This leads to pain, numbness in parts of the hand, thumb, and index finger.

TREATMENT

Through a minimally invasive procedure and with two or three holes, the torn TFCC ligament will be repaired using anchors (it is a screw loaded with threads to stitch the ligament).

Thorough a minimally invasive procedure, the compression on the median nerve will released.
