How do I know the WristWidget® will work for my TFCC tear?
How does your wrist feel when testing? How does it feel when taped? These answers determine if the WristWidget is the correct wrist splint for you.
What is the TFCC?
The TFCC is the main stabilizer of the wrist. It is a ligament connecting bone to bone. It supports the wrist with grip, weight-bearing, and rotation (supination and pronation). It keeps the radius and ulna from painfully spreading apart.
TFCC tears are characterized by pain on the ulnar (pinky) side of the wrist that gets worse with gripping, rotating, weight-bearing movements.
Common splints can be very painful as they apply compression the Ulna (wristbone).
Sports are hard on wrists
If your sport causes you to bear weight, rotate, flex, or extend your wrist, you're at risk for a TFCC tear.
A must-have for sports like golf, tennis, baseball, rugby, polo, volleyball, hockey, water polo, surfing, climbing, bowling, acrobatics, gymnastics, soccer, badmiton, weight lifting, bodybuilding, and yoga.
