A Twist of the Wrist: Well, normal for YOU.But if you still have pain or discomfort or limitation of motion,then SOMETHING is going on in there.But, the MRI should show almost all of the big stuff--so what you need is some hand therapy by a physical therapist who understands hand problems. Also,did the hand doc suggest a splint or other device to help healing,or any medications or injections?There are other modalities
