Flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) tendonitis

The FCU is often confused with a TFCC injury.  They are nearly the same except for a few distinguishing details.

Extensor Carpi Ulnaris (ECU) tendonitis

TFCC and ECU injuries can be easily confused - which is challenging because treatment for each is very different.  Understand the right treatment plan for each condition

The Piano Key Sign test - Compression of the Ulna head

Why does it hurt when the ulnar head is compressed with TFCC tears or DRUJJ instability?  And what splint should you use in this case?

Ulnar Impaction - Ulnar Abutment

Ulnar Impaction Syndrome (UIS), Ulnar abutment, or ulnocarpal loading is a serious condition but it can have a non-surgical resolution. Wendy shares her research with you here.
