In 2006, I was busy sewing each WristWidget® by hand, voraciously studying its effects and solving the many challenges to get it where it is today. As I sit in awe looking back at the journey behind me, I am astonished at its success, the wonderful emails that I receive all day, every day, and the accomplishments I have made in changing what we know about the TFCC.
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.
It is quite difficult, as a patient, to get a ton of information about the TFCC. The internet is full of conflicting information with very little consistency, and non-specific information. If you are like most, you have already visited your physician and are searching for more information.
