It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

Wrist bone contusion plus torn wrist cartilage tfcc. X ray shows my injuried wrist bones too close to each other.  What can I do?

Grow cartilage: Most doctors do not believe, but we actually grow new cartilage in every joint in our body, every minute of every day. You need to wear out more slowly, and grow cartilage more quickly. Glucosamine works, but for the wrist needs to be given through skin by cream, or by injection. Oral pills do not work except for knees. www.blatmanhealthandwellness.com. ...Read more

Could a hairline fracture in the radius cause stiffness and make my thumb pop when moved?

One associated: issue that arises occasionally with a fracture of the radius ( and for some reason nondisplaced fractures) is irritation of the extensor tendon that elevates the thumb tip or the EPL tendon. Another cause of "popping" can be a separate issue in the thumb itself such as a trigger thumb with irritation from the injury or swelling due to it. These issues should be discussed and examined. ...Read more

Minimally displaced fractured trapezium with multiple carpal avulsion fractures. Considerable pain with use after 28 months. Chances of arthritis?

Minimally displaced fractured trapezium with multiple carpal avulsion fractures. Considerable pain with use after 28 months. Chances of arthritis?

Very high : Osteoarthritis frequently occurs at the site of old injuries, your wrist has not only a fracture but also disruption of the ligaments that provide stability so the small bones (carpals) of the wrist can function normally. Without the ligaments keeping them in position there will be shift of the carpals resulting in pressure on areas that do not have enough cartilage causing arthritis. ...Read more
