Central TFCC tears WILL heal!

Q:   I purchased my WristWidget because I was diagnosed with a slight TFCC tear. So far I am very pleased. My doctor said that the TFCC has no blood supply and will not fully heal; is this true? I have noticed significant improvement since I injured it about 8 weeks ago. Thanks! 

 

A: In working with patients on this injury since 2005, I am able to confirm with great confidence that the central portion of the TFCC heals beautifully.

I have articulated a protocol for you to use as a guide to healing. 

Take special note of the pronator stretch of the elbow and diet. Central tears have more problems with supination with load which require a different protocol than peripheral tears.
