After 11 years of looking at the TFCC full time, all day, every day, I have seen a dynamic in patients that is predictable. I see many elite athletes who find that their TFCC injuries heal to about 90%. The last 10% seems to take the longest to acquire. I have long known this and started to closely examine the structures of the elbow, shoulder, and neck.
Why does ulnar compression hurt with TFCC tears or DRUJJ instability?
You phone the specialists and you have to wait 3-4 weeks for a hand consult. Why don't you simply perform the Weight Bearing Test? I found it incredibly accurate in assessing the wrist. This simple tool is available in every country. It is cheap. It is reliable. The test does not require a prescription or insurance to perform. It will diagnose TFCC tears.
